I make it a priority to
understand the
nature of your
business interests.


We all go through a process to make a pricing-decision. My job is to become your in-house research analyst, so that you have the best fundamental information to do your job better.

Everybody can access generic information and government or weather reports at the same time. What differentiates the research and distinguishes me are the contacts, style, delivery, approach and detail that are not readily available. There is so much information out there, but by focusing on what really matters and by leveraging observations, trends & opinion, decisions can then be made with confidence and less on emotion.

Yellow Pea: Feb 25-19

$7/bu just might the sweet spot. $6/bu is too cheap and demand stimulative. $8/bu is too high and demand rationing. For about the first 5 months of the crop year, no matter the flat price, FSU/Baltic are known to offer peas cheaper than Canadian origin. Other than that negative early crop year seasonality, ongoing routine food/feed demand + growing protein demand + respected risk that India might buy more than expected provides support.

For 19/20 demand specifically, NET growth should be smaller than 18/19 because year over year demand loss to cheaper soymeal should be larger than stronger/ongoing protein food growth…..unless India opens up.

If would like more detail on this or on anything else in the reading room, please send me an email or can be reached by
