How to Buy Butter Stocks
Unlike most commodities, it is quite challenging to gain indirect exposure to butter through an investment in companies that are engaged in the production and distribution of butter. For this particular commodity, there are very few publicly traded companies that base their operations exclusively on butter.
There are, however, some alternatives available. The largest, publicly traded dairy producer that derives at least some of its revenues from the production of butter is Dean Foods Co. (DF). Another option for investors is Feihe International, Inc. (ADY), which is an international distributor of dairy products in China. These stocks will seldom move in lock step with butter prices, but may be an interesting option for certain investors.
