rather than bying oil outright, you could look at structured products like this one.
It pays 10% per year, and your risk is quite limited. The downside would be bying oil if the price goes down by 25% within 6 month. Well check out the termsheet, the same product exists in CHF.
Instead of of a structured product, IMHO it would be better to invest in an WTI ETF or an WTI future.

OH NO!!!! Not an academic!!!! The real world doesnt work off of "modern portfolio theory"..... Sorry.....

So if you think Im an ass, then track the price and holla back in 3 months.

Agricultural prices dont go up until there is a panic my friend. Look at wheat 2 years ago. Took 5 months after the Russian crop failed for them to explode.
Does anyone know what happened to soybean? Is it up 50% yet??

Re: investment ideas

My advice for amateur investors:
* visit seekingalpha.com
* focus on their section discussing high-dividend-yield stocks
* make a wish list
* keep reading and refining
* eventually dive in

You'll quickly get to having a list of 30-40 stocks to look out for and wait for the right buying opportunity or narrowing it further down. It will contain the usual suspects: Shell, Banco Santander, Áltria, etc.

Re: investment ideas

Any suggestions on something simple. Like 10% possible upside. I liked the CS structure product on Crude but the problem is that crude is relatively high. Any big bad news from EU / US might drag it down.

Any suggestions are welcome..
