An interesting one, and he's always done fine on it. It’s basically feed and seed. If you think global agriculture is going to continue to grow, this is a good place to be.

It’s basically feed and seed plus some John Deere equipment manufacturers etc. It has done fairly well and it’s a way to play that sector and there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s been around for quite some time. It wouldn’t be his most preferred choice but it would be something he wouldn’t have an objection to but he wouldn’t be overweighted either.

A seed & feed ETF along with agricultural machinery, 90% North America. There is nothing wrong with this. If you like the agriculture sector, this is a good one.

Now would be a good entry point for this. It has done very well in the past year, but you should not be afraid of it. Farmland is being eaten up by urbanization, but meanwhile the population of the planet is still growing, and we have less land to grow food.

An ETF that invest in agriculture products and companies globally. A good way to get access to tangibles and alternatives.

This is great. It has done very well for people. This may have gotten a little ahead of itself and he wouldn’t be jumping in right now.

(A Top Pick Oct 14/16. Up 3.2%.) (All these picks started off with positive seasonality between now and the end of the year. On the technicals, at the very least, you want the security trading in an upward trend and outperforming the market.) You want to continue holding this. Because grain prices have bottomed over the last couple of months, and are starting to turn higher, a good scenario for agriculture stocks.

Technically this is clearly in an upward trend and recently broke to new highs. Agricultural stocks have done very well from the end of September through to the year-end, but have been in the toilet in the last little while, particularly grain prices. Soybeans, corn and wheat finally started to base today. The chart broke out of a base pattern. Higher grain prices means more money for the farmers and they buy more things. The end of the year, seasonally, is a good time to take some profits.

MOO-N and COW-T have come down. He is in accumulation mode on both. Great long term sectors to hold. Not bad timing here.

(A Top Pick May 27/15. Down 8.28%.) The idea is that agriculture should be one of those things that is fairly insensitive to movement, simply because everybody has to eat. He got most of his clients out of this 3-4 months ago.

(Top Pick Mar 17/15, Down 5.76%) Everyone has to eat. It is a good diversifier, counter cyclical. It was down relatively less than other things around the world. He sold about a month ago.

(A Top Pick Dec 18/14. Up 4.49%.) The thesis on this is agricultural commodities. This might do well during inflationary pressures. You’re getting exposure to companies that are buying fertilizers, etc.

The agricultural area sort of falls into the same theme as weak commodity prices, weak oil prices; they are all loosely affiliated. It is a consumer product at the very bottom of the spectrum. He has never been a huge fan of this segment. He wouldn’t have it is a very big piece of your portfolio, maybe 5%.

(Top Pick Aug 6/15, Down 8.75%) This was oversold, too far below the 200 day. It did get a lower low, but if it breaks above the pivot it will be okay. He thinks it will rally up to the 200 day.

(Top Pick Aug 24/15, Down 3.47%) It could be seasonally okay to buy agriculture towards the end of the year. It is at the point where it is close to violating support. He may sell in the next few days.
