Top Food Inflation ETF to Buy

By
A A A

PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (NYSE: DBA ) - This exchange traded fund (ETF) seeks to track the price and performance of the Deutsche Bank Liquid Commodity Index.

On Dec. 28, at $30, the Trade of the Day said: "Food shortages and higher prices for commodities like wheat, corn, soybeans and sugar are being forecast by economists worldwide. And the recent move by China to raise interest rates is evidence that the country's central planners are concerned about possible inflation in food prices that could cripple their economy.

"As for agriculture ETF DBA, note the impressive pickup in volume on the chart, as well as the golden cross and the recent breakout from a double-top following a bounce from its 50-day moving average."


Rising food costs, or food inflation, are at the forefront of investors' minds as storms in the United States and Australia helped drive up grain and livestock prices. And sugar futures jumped to their highest levels in more than three decades.

I'm raising the near-term target for DBA from $36 to $40. Long-term investors may want to hold this ETF as a cornerstone investment with a price objective north of $50.
