I am looking over my charts and research reports and I am looking for unique opportunities to make money. I thought the agriculture or agri-business and the commodities sector may be a good area to take a look at. There are a number of commodities and agriculture ETF funds that have not done to bad this year. The PowerShares Agricultural Fund (NYSEARCA:DBA) has a market return of 7.85% as of 9/30/2010 while the ProShares Leverage Ultra-DJ UBS Commodity Fund which invests in weighted holdings of different commodities has a market return of $17.79%.
I thought maybe a combination of individual agricultural stocks and commodities ETFs may offer the best chance to make money in this sector without losing your shirt.I am putting the stock Bunge Ltd. (NYSE:BG) for the fertilizer play and the ProShares Leveraged Ultra DJ UBS Commodity Fund (NYSEARCA:UCD) for it's well weighted portfolio of commodities, on my watch list today. I will also be adding more positions to this portfolio’s watch list in the coming weeks, but will start with these two for now.
Disclosure: No postions but on current watch list
