13 High-Yielding Commodities for 2013


Archer Daniels Midland, Deere & Company, and Exxon Mobil make the list.

3. Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE:CLF)

The great infrastructure build-out remains the name of the game for many emerging market nations, and the heart of that build-out is iron ore and steel. Cliffs Natural Resources is a leading producer of iron ore pellets, fine and lump ore, and metallurgical coal. Pricing struggles within its coal holdings are responsible for CLF's big drop over the last year. However, metallurgical coal is the kind used to make steel, not for electricity. That puts it in a better position than other coal producers for the future.

Cliffs Natural Resources currently yields a whopping 7.74%, if it can hold its dividend throughout the new year.

4. Deere & Company (NYSE:DE)

Its bright green and yellow tractors are a staple of almost every farm on the planet; however, Deere & Company is more than just combines and threshers. The company also produces a variety of construction, earthmoving, material handling, and timber harvesting machines, as well as off-high diesel engines. This leadership position in a variety of heavy duty manufacturing has produced a steady dividend play tied to a variety of commodities.

Deere's dividend prowess was recently highlighted by everyone's favorite value investor, Warren Buffett. Retail investors can tap into DE and gain a 2.15% yield.

5. Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA:GDXJ)

Investors continue to flock to gold as a way to play all the of quantitative easing programs and currency debasement currently going on in the market. Equally as appealing are those firms that dig up the precious metal. However, thinking small might be a better bet for your gold allocation, or at least a portion of it. The junior miners offer some of the greatest leverage with regard to increasing gold demand and rising prices, and the Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF is the best way to play it.

The ETF spreads its $2.8 billion assets among 75+ different global junior gold and silver miners. Best of all, the fund yields a juicy 5.59%.

6. Market Vectors Coal ETF (NYSEARCA:KOL)

Despite the recent moves by the EPA and the Obama administration to kill coal use by power plants in the United States, global coal consumption continues to rise at exponential rates. Driven by emerging market demand, coal's future as a piece of the world's energy pie is pretty much assured. That is why the Market Vectors Coal ETF may look like an enticing value play. The fund has fallen hard over the last year or so as the new US-focused regulations have taken hold.

KOL features a global portfolio of 35 different coal producers, many of which are unaffected by the EPA's requirements. Top holdings include Australia's Aurizon and China's Yanzhou Coal Mining. The ETF also yields a very respectable 2.03%, all for only 0.59% in expenses.
