In Europe and UK companies like Associated British Foods, Real Good food, Faccenda, Just Eat, Nestle, SAB Miller, and Danone would benefit from a drop in commodity prices to varying degrees. Industry wise, poultry companies, animal feed producers, grain elevators and other food processing industries would benefit from low corn, soya bean and wheat prices.

I saw somewhere that U.S. food producer Cargill is going to create a new British joint venture with UK peer Faccenda Foods focused on poultry production.

This is not a recommendation. As market has stretched, valuation and great growth are some of the factors anybody should consider before picking stocks.

If you judge that this is a sectoral thing then why not the ETF SPAG? (I'm not a holder, but it's long been on my watchlist). Sluggish growth though does not support the contention....

I have been following Tullow Oil as a recovery stock. It has been mentioned in several articles in recent times and is up around +20% in the last 1-3 months (up ~4% today). I haven't bought yet, but I wish my investments were all +20% on this short time scale. T Oil is still making a loss and stopped paying divs in 2014. What do others think?
