How to Buy Milk Stocks
For some commodities, such as crude oil, it's possible to gain indirect exposure through an investment in companies that are engaged in production or extraction. This is challenging in the case of this particular commodity because there are few publicly traded companies engaged exclusively in the production and distribution of milk.
There are, however, some options available. The largest in terms of market cap is Groupe DANONE (DA), which is based in France. Other options include Dean Foods Co. (DF), Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods(WBD), and Synutra International Inc. (SYUT). These stocks will seldom move in lock step with milk prices, but may be an interesting option for certain investors.
