Commodity stocks, specifically crude oil investments and agriculture stocks, are in focus right now. If the global economy is to keep growing, industrial consumers from Shanghai to Shreveport will need to buy raw materials. That means commodity investments could be very profitable in the next few months if economic indicators point upwards.
