BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Normally, investors equate a rally in commodities with struggling stock performance, but that's not necessarily true.While rising commodity prices do tend to correlate with flat or downward movement in the stock market, the exception comes in resource stocks. Not surprisingly, the firms that own the commodities (and their factors of production) are the biggest beneficiaries of rising commodity costs. That's precisely what's been going on this year -- just take a look at oil and gas producers, which have already seen average gains of 15% year-to-date.
