Why Farmland is an Excellent High Yield Investmentgreenworldadmin | Friday, August 31st, 2012 | 1 Comment »
We have just coom across another excellent little article from our favorite investor. In this article, Jim Rogers once again discusses why he believes agriculture investments such a great place to be right now. According to Rogers:
“Various problems point to higher agricultural prices, and investors should buy now. Any weather problems will have big effects because of the dire situation in farming. Agriculture will be one of the best sectors of the world economy for years as I have told you often,” he said.
Consider the following logic. If prices for agriculture commodities such as wheat are high, then those investors who own farmland will naturally benefit from a quite high dividend yield when the wheat crop is sold into the marketplace. In a low or zero interest rate world, many retail investors are searching for secure high yield investments for income. Whilst many may “reach for yield” by investing in risky assets such as high yield bonds or other esoteric investments, farmland as an investment can provide the same high (or even higher) dividend yield without the dangerous exposure to an unsteady financial system that more risky financial assets do.
Luckily for individuals, it is now possible to invest directly into the “real asset” of farmland, and GreenWorld is leading the way with three direct farmland projects with low minimums investment requires.
