NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As a value investor, I've been long fascinated by agriculture names, primarily the smaller ones. Some of these companies have long histories, and came to the public markets fairly late in the game.In some cases, when they did go public, it was not because they desired to be in the spotlight, or wanted to raise capital, but more as a means to create an exit strategy for owners. Sometimes this meant an initial listing on the "pink sheets" where information is typically scarce, and trading is thin.
