Investing in U.S. Farmland: Why it is NOT Overvalued

 

WindRock interviews Hunt Stookey, Director of Research and Investment Strategy at Ceres Partners.  Mr. Stookey discusses why farmland values, despite strong performance, are not overvalued and offer a great opportunity for the following reasons: caloric consumption growth from a rising standard of living in China and other developing countries; shortages in global food stockpiles; low debt levels and lack of institutional money by buyers of farmland (typically other farmers); and substantial income from leasing farmland to operators which is especially relevant in today's environment of ultra-low interest rates.  June 2014.
