Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) February 14, 2012 -- Penny stock analyst Peter Leeds believes changes in global food demand overseas are creating opportunities for penny stock investors here at home.
An increasingly sophisticated diet among developing nations is increasing food and water demands, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Previous to 1975, China's per capita intake of calories, protein, and fat were well below the world average, but now those metrics are well above.
The FAO also states that developing nations nearby are experiencing a similar trend, such as is evidenced in Pakistan, India, and Indonesia.
This increased dietary sophistication is further compounded by expanding population numbers. The World's Population Clock by Worldometers now measures the total population at 7 billion people, up 1 billion since 1999.
Both the FAO and Worldometers anticipate that the dietary and population trends are expected to continue, if not accelerate.
Widely followed penny stock analyst Peter Leeds believes this scenario will create great opportunities for penny stock investors. "When demand increases and strains an underlying supply, you'll see specific penny stock companies that will benefit."
"We've been watching the best penny stock companies in the food and water business - logistics, production, harvesting, agricultural, filtering, transportation, rendering... There are many opportunities for penny stock investors, and those opportunities only increase as food and water supplies see their demand rise."
Asked what kinds of penny stock companies he has profiled recently to his penny stock newsletter followers, he points to S&W Seed Company (SANW), among others. SANW engineers alfalfa seeds which can grow in harsh environments and poor soils. Their shares have doubled in price in the last 9 months, recently hitting a year high of $6.20, and taking the company from penny stock territory to well above it.
Leeds states that he has his eye on several food and water related penny stock companies to buy right now, and his analysis team has been given instructions to spend extra time researching the penny stock companies in the food and water supply space.
Leeds explains that further penny stock picks in the related industries will be made for their newsletter subscribers as these food and water demand trends play out.
"For penny stock investors," adds Leeds, "growing populations and changing dietary trends are some of the most relevant events right now for spotting tomorrow's winning penny stock investments."
