Jim Rogers Says Commodities Bull Market Alive, Shares Top Picks

Tonight I was reading HardAssetsInvestor.com, the research-oriented web site “devoted to sharing ideas about hard assets investing,” when I came across an interview of well-known investor, author, and financial commentator Jim Rogers. The former investing partner of George Soros touched on a number of topics, but I was most interested in what he had to say about the state of commodities and potential money-making opportunities in that area. From the exchange with HAI Managing Editor Sumit Roy:

ROY: If you look at the broad commodity indices, they’ve fallen for four-straight years. A lot of analysts are out there right now talking about how, given this poor performance, commodities are in a bear market. Do you agree with that?

ROGERS: I would disagree that the fundamentals are like that. If you look back at the bull market in stocks between 1982 and 2000, there were plenty of periods when stocks went down a lot and stayed down a while. You may remember in 1987, stocks went down 40 to 80 percent around the world. Many people said the bull market was over. Likewise, they said the same thing in 1989, 1990, 1994. I could go on and on.

In my view, the permanent fundamentals are not bad enough yet that the bull market is over. I still own some commodities, especially agriculture. It’s not over till it’s over…

ROY: What are your top commodity picks for the next year or two?

ROGERS: Agriculture’s extremely depressed, so I would look there to find places to invest in. Believe it or not, something like sugar is down more than 75 percent from its all-time high, and that was 40 years ago. If you’re talking about a depressed market, sugar’s very depressed. I would get out the charts and see which other ones are also depressed and start doing my homework in those areas.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

It’s common knowledge that Jim Rogers predicted the start of the commodities bull market that began in 1999.

Back on December 11, 2014, I blogged about what Singapore-based Rogers said regarding the best ways to invest in agriculture.
