I’ve made it no secret that I’m a big fan of Jim Rogers. I think the man is a brilliant investor. He’s a billionaire most likely, though he’s extremely private about his actual portfolio, and has a collection of hard to locate and/or price investments (like farmland). Still, he’s a smart guy, and I read everything he publicly says.
One of the best books he’s written — and he’s written several — is the book “Hot Commodities“, in which he claims commodities are the best investment for the next few decades — if not longer. It’s a book everyone should read, whether they’re professional investors or just normal people looking to make money investing. Click here to see prices on Amazon for the book.
What the Book Says
He begins by explaining why he thinks commodities are completely undervalued. The supply and demand are off — most commodities are under-valued to the extent that investors have, over the last decade or two, foused on “growth” companies rather than “resource” industries like coffee, sugar, lead, as well as gold and other commodities we talk about here.
His case for commodities is something he’s made public, including this article I wrote about how he supports buying up farmland as a good investment.
He does more than just give the case for commodities, of course. He also gives detailed technical information, and explains how and when to invest in the individual commodities as a type of investment educational foundation. This is more specific information than typical economics books, of course.
Has He Been Right So Far?
Yes. In the last few years, he’s made a fortune. In the last year alone, he’s made millions upon millions. We’re in a commodities bull market — for oil, natural gas, gold, silver, agriculture, and pretty much everything else. Raw food/agriculture prices were up 20-40% just a few months ago, as I reported at Stand Strong Research.
Click here, and buy the book. You should be able to get a copy for $10. It’s probably the cheapest educational investment you can make if you want to understand the next few decades.
