How to Buy Sugar Stocks
For some commodities, it is possible to establish indirect exposure through positions in stocks of companies engaged in the extraction or production of the resource. While there are dozens of oil companies and gold miners, there are few publicly-traded sugar companies. One option in this space is Imperial Sugar (IPSU), a U.S. company that refines, packages, and distributes sugar. IPSU\'s profitability tends to be impacted by sugar prices.
There are some international options as well. Bajaj Hindusthan Ltd (500032), India\'s largest sugar producer, is traded on the Bombay Stock Exchange.
