investment ideas

I have cash sitting in the bank, with virtually no interest at all. Are there any good investments opportunities for CHF with an investment horizon of around 1 or 2 years? I have looked into some equity funds, but the fees are too high. I wonder if there are good value stocks that offer dividents of around 5%.

You want the stocks to be quoted in CHF, so therefore a Swiss business, right?

I'd suggest that your time horizon is a bit short for a country surrounded by euro markets, but i've always thought that Nestle stock is better than any Swiss bank account

This is a good question. I am also interested in investing, what are other options?

Not sure about other options, but the Nestle suggestion is excellent.

Re: investment ideas

Buy Soybeal Oil. Only until December or Jan.... Should make 50%+
There is an ETF for it if you dont have a futures account.

SOYO LN..... Its an ETF in London.

Supply doesnt reach demand and its getting worse. Basically there is about a 25 day supply of cooking oil in the world. With the failure of the US crops this year we will have about a 70 to 90 window of no cooking oil.

Sounds interesting. Is there some kind of online equity trading platform in Switzerland? Or I need a stock broker?

Re: investment ideas

My sources are what???? I am the source.

Ive been an agricultural analyst for the better part of 15 years. I do this for about 20% of my living.. If you didnt know that the US is out of food you must be under a rock or not reading the news. The USA is the Saudi Arabia of food. They will cut exports to the rest of the world starting in December.

Re: investment ideas

The whole world knows it and it's not discounted in the price yet.
Is it just me that this does not add up for?

True to a degree....But i disagree with your conclusions

The US weather isn't exactly a secret, and yet the prices aren't rising. Why would that be? I think its because palm oil stocks are very high. I doubt you'll get a 50% return unless the weather gets much much worse

Re: investment ideas

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.

Re: investment ideas

CPO is a small % of global oilcrops still. There is an explosion in supply. But the global supplies will be at 25 days, even under the best CPO scenarios. If CPO goes to the lower end and Russias oilseed crop doesnt keep up with USDA estimates then we will be down to about a 19 day supply.

Re: investment ideas

Global CPO production is only up by 2Mmt this year....... How is crude palm oil going to make a difference?

Palm oil is 20% bigger globally than soy oil.

And Russian crops are developing very nicely.

Re: investment ideas

I was in Russia last week, and no, they are not.......... We own farms there.

CPO is 30% of the global Oilseed market and its not growing that fast. Would you like me to send you the chart of global supplies for all combined oilcrops?

Youre making up shit because you dont like my idea. Or is that because you have never traded a futures contract before?

Re: investment ideas

Russia, Ukraine

Farmers in Russia will harvest 8 million tons of the oilseed, down from 9.5 million tons last year and 400,000 tons less than last month’s outlook, the report showed. Ukraine’s sunflower-seed crop is seen falling to 8.6 million tons from 9.3 million tons, with the outlook cut by 600,000 tons.
The outlook for Northern Hemisphere sunflower-seed production is “declining at an alarming rate,” Oil World wrote. “Production prospects have considerably deteriorated as a result of unfavorably hot and dry conditions.”
