How to Buy Corn Stocks
For some commodities, it is possible to gain indirect exposure to the resource through an investment in companies that are engaged in growing or producing the commodity. Because a significant portion of global corn output comes from small farmers or privately held companies, options for exposure via this strategy are limited.
There are, however, some options available. There are many agribusiness firms that provide products and services to farmers, and the profitability of these companies often shows a correlation to agricultural spot prices. Some of the largest agribusiness firms include Potash (POT), Monsanto (MON), and The Mosaic Company (MOS). These stocks are by no means pure play on corn, but present another option for investors looking to gain exposure.
