Summary Written by commodities expert Roland A. Jansen, Profits from Natural Resources provides a thorough overview of this explosive asset class, examining both the current natural resources picture and the outlook for their future performance. With complete details on the global supply and demand scenario, it explains what has fueled the renewed interest in natural resources, which industries are the major players, and which stocks and mutual funds have the greatest upward potential. Most importantly, in addition to the why's of playing the natural resource markets, Jansen provides the how's, presenting a solid game plan for investing prudently in traditional resources like grains and metals, as well as in such alternative resources as solar energy, wind energy, and hydrogen and fuel cell technology
Though traditionally popular investment vehicles, natural resources lost momentum over the past few years with the advent of financial futures and the continued growth of the U.S. stock market. However, they are now experiencing a renaissance as an increased tightening of oil, gas, grains, metals, and other natural resources is transforming them into a virtual, if not literal, goldmine of opportunity
