    recession resistant

    So nothing is recession proof, but adm appears to be somewhat recession resistant. given the economic times has a place in ones investments. One has to admit while not as hard hit as a ag comodity by dry or bad growing years it has to hedge and diversify to deal in makets that have crop yield variations. like adm doing more business in Brasil for example. Population growth/demand for adm services/products continues. Ironically the variation in crop yields by geographic region is a driver of adm business of moving crops from high inventory/producing nations to areas of need/consumer demand. still like this one long term, still expect it to return to solid performance at any time. glta
