This in turn reduced the level of uncertainty and price volatility in agricultural commodities and drove a significant recovery in prices in the second half of 2020. Now, with a COVID-19 mass vaccination program starting to take effect and the re-emergence of China as an important consumer, agricultural commodity prices are moving higher. Hence, we think the stocks of Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM), Nutrien (NTR), and The Mosaic (MOS) are well-positioned to benefit in the coming months.

2 Investment Banks to Buy as M&A Activity Heats Up

With U.S. Presidential elections now history and a level of political certainty assured for the time being, many companies now feel comfortable taking more calculated risks, such as moving forward with M&A plans.
