According to the article:
- Sugar has never been this cheap relative to crude oil.
- Jim Rogers, my hero, does not see the credit crunch affecting the soft commodities. "There are three billion people in Asia who were not involved the last time we had a commodities rally and aren't going to lose their appetite because of problems in the U.S."
- Marc Faber, analyst and investor, said prices of agricultural commodities were "still extremely low" in real terms and "look relatively attractive" because of potential weather disruptions.
And if you're the hedging type - pick up a few sugar contracts and short crude oil. They can both be used for fuel, after all.
