Market Vectors announces the March switch of the underlying index to be tracked by its Agribusiness ETF (MOO), swapping out the DAXglobal Index for one of its own making. The new benchmark is more U.S. focused - 40.6% weighting as opposed to 36.9% - but the top 4 holdings of Monsanto, Syngenta, Potash, and Deere remain.

    MOO has been one of my favorites for many years as a bet
    on the rapidly growing middle classes in India, China and
    many other places, and their growing demand for improved
    diet which the components of MOO are major contributors too.

     

    I have done very well and continue to build my holding.

     

    The increased emphasis on US holdings makes a lot of
    sense. Today's Financial Times has an analysis of US
    business on the Comments page by Sebastian Mallaby
    including the results of a study showing that US companies
    have increased their lead as the best-managed of any
    in the world.
