@JackWolf you honestly thinks he cares if we starve?
What a humankind tragedy that will exasperate world hunger. I fear that Ukraine will not be the “Breadbasket of Europe” any longer due to this invasion. My investments in BG, UAN, TAGS, and WEAT were predicated on agricultural forecasts, but I didn’t factor in WAR. It’s a shame and will add to food scarcity worldwide.
On the bright side. The 2 1/2 million new voters that arrived last year eat corn flour.
@WallyZ And the voters already here eat mostly corn syrup.
only the beggining sady it seems....

KHC might be worth a second look with its ORE-IDA brand interests. Too bad JR Simplot is private equity.
I eat a slice of bread nightly as a snack. Not looking forward to paying more for my loaf from my local grocer. :/

As an investor, I'm going to pivot a bigger portion of my portfolio to WEAT
@Puppychow flour, sugar, yeast, water - bread machine
