Any of you old timers out there remember the lyrics from an old Rod Stewart song (Mandolin Wind circa 1971)? “…coldest winter in almost 14 years” (Millennials need to YouTube it).
Despite all the “Global Warming” rants, it just so happens that the recent month of April is on record as the coldest in 140 years.
Not only does this fly in the face of the fear mongering, bought-and-paid-for media presstitutes (along with Al Gore, who’ve both been wrong for the last decade about global warming), it also presents some hidden investment opportunities.
You see, unusually cold winters result in lower crop production.
So, do the math with me here. Lower crop production means less output. Less output means less food. Less food means less feeder stock for animals that we depend on for food. Less animals means higher prices for beef, chicken, pork, etc.
Are you seeing the pattern here?
In Plain English it translates into higher food prices for all of us.
Needless to say, the burden of higher prices falls on you and me.
So, who benefits from this?
All you need to do is look at companies who produce and/or distribute food and you’ll find the answer.
In other words, think commodity stocks.
By now you know we don’t like to make specific stock recommendations (Cough! Archer Daniels Midland Cough! Cough!).
However, we wrote about the commodities cycle turning positive in late 2017 (HERE) and tied it in with the Global Warming Scam.
We even mentioned several companies for you to “consider buying” which are currently outperforming most of the markets in 2018.
Instead of freaking out over volatility in 2018, get ahead of the crowd by seeing which sectors are quietly outperforming the markets (HERE).
