The global economic instability of the last year has no doubt rattled investors and left them looking for any kind of a stable place to invest. One of those places has been agriculture. The growing population and the need to feed them has raised the value of the agricultural industry as a whole. The bottom line being that people need food to live. Naturally, anything involved with that becomes increasingly valuable as the need for food grows. Ag companies like Deere & Co have reaped the benefits of this fact as people like Bill Gates have looked to them as a both a safe haven and a good return for their cash.
Gary Pike is another one of those people that looks to agriculture as a good place to invest. Gary runs BroadAcre Agriculture Incorporated(formerly Pike Management Group). I asked Gary why he’s so bullish agriculture, commidities and what it means for Canadian farmers. Gary is what I call uber-bullish. In fact it is hard to find a commodity that he is not bullish on.
