World-class investor, Jim Rogers, once remarked that “nobody wants to be farmers anymore” because of changing lifestyle and rapid affluence among agricultural countries. Due to this global trend, there is a market distortion in the commodity supply and demand. Against the backdrop of rising demand and decreasing supply, commodity stocks are expected to do well in the long-run. In view of this, will Wilmar share price hit the roof in 2020?
All eyes are on the upcoming mega listing of its Chinese subsidiary in China and this catalyst had led to a buoyant Wilmar share price for the past few months.
