Performance of Commodity Sub-Groups

Monday, December 31, 2007 | 03:00 PM

Mike Panzner takes a look at the Commodity Research Bureau Index for 2007.

This year (2007), its is up 16.6%.

Given all the headlines about near-$100 oil, people might naturally assume the best-performer among the six sub-groups is energy.

That would be wrong.

In fact, the grains are the king of commodities during 2007. That sub-group, which includes wheat, corn, and soybean futures, has outpaced the CRB index by 34.61%, around twice that of the energy complex.
