What’s Behind the Commodities Rally?

What’s Behind the Commodities Rally?

On this episode of The Thematic Signals Podcast Chris Versace checks in with Sal Gilbertie, Teucrium Trading Chief Investment Officer

Welcome to the Thematic Signals podcast, where we look to distill everyday noise into clear investing signals using our thematic lens and our 10 investing themes. On this episode Chris Versace welcomes Sal Gilbertie, the Chief Investment Officer at  Teucrium Trading, back to the podcast. In the past on Tematica’s Cocktail Investing podcast, Chris and Sal have talked about the thematic influences on agricultural commodities, including Tematica’s New Global Middle-class one. They touch on that today but also discuss the current supply constraints as well as looming ones that have led to a supply imbalance, particularly for corn and soybeans, that has sent prices soaring. Sal explains how investors should think about these commodities across the 5 to 7 year cycle and shares why the upcoming G20 summit could serve as another catalyst for commodity prices to move higher. The two also discuss the ripple effect to be had on both consumers and companies in the agricultural complex but also those that count corn as a key input.

About the Author

Chris Versace, Chief Investment Officer
I'm the Chief Investment Officer of Tematica Research and editor of Tematica Investing newsletter. All of that capitalizes on my near 20 years in the investment industry, nearly all of it breaking down industries and recommending stocks. In that time, I've been ranked an All Star Analyst by Zacks Investment Research and my efforts in analyzing industries, companies and equities have been recognized by both Institutional Investor and Thomson Reuters’ StarMine Monitor. In my travels, I've covered cyclicals, tech and more, which gives me a different vantage point, one that uses not only an ecosystem or food chain perspective, but one that also examines demographics, economics, psychographics and more when formulating my investment views. The question I most often get is "Are you related to…."
