If you want to invest in commodities, writes Josh Brown, do you buy the physical (through an ETF) or the producers? His preference is the physical as the producers can often be counted on to issue secondaries or grant massive stock options just at the time when a bull market makes things fun (sounds familiar to fans of gold miners).

    I have a little bit of GDXJ, and am happy with the way it tracks, for sure I don't want to own a minor miner, the big ones can't hardly handle it. But gold will go up so this is the 2nd best way to handle it. best is buy the physical
