Over the last decade or so, commodities haven’t exactly been the investment du jour. After reaching historic highs before the Great Recession, they fell right along with the world’s economy. And they’ve basically stayed in the dumps for the nine years or so since the crisis.
All of that changed, however, as inflation expectations began to ramp up. Natural resources become hot once again and investors piled into corn, copper and crude oil in spades – that is until inflation expectations fell by the wayside.
For investors, this could be a prime opportunity to snag shares of the major natural resource stocks or even the funds that bet on commodities themselves. There are plenty of reasons why commodities still have room to run.
