Wetter is Better

By Gary Scott

Natural Resources

Messages over the past five years have suggested investing in water. This philosophy has some good numbers to support it. $1,000 invested in water utility stocks at the end of 1981 grew $39,980 at the end of 2001, more than double the growth of S&P 500.

Investments in water have outranked most other investment sectors yet remain unrecognized by most investors so water stock prices remain good value. Well not every investors has missed this trend. Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.,each own more than 10% of a class of stock in Great Lakes Chemical Corporation. Great Lakes Chemical Corporation which develops and delivers specialty chemical solutions that treat and purify water, keep surfaces in and around the home shining, protect against and extinguish fire, and make consumer products perform better. This company is listed on NYSE: Code GLK. Learn more at www.e1.greatlakes.com/corp/common/jsp/index.jsp

There are other solid reasons to invest in water:

The first is obviously supply and demand. Water will become scarcer in the future because there is a growing global population that will consume and pollute more water.

Second, government regulations about water everywhere create opportunity. In the US the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act are creating an entire new water treatment industry. Municipalities and industries are being forced to clean up drinking water and wastewater.Even China is now testing a new system of rewarding its bureaucrats who not only meet economic but environmental goals. Opportunities exist in many areas of the water industry from bottling to replacing water infrastructures to water line and water main replacements that create growth in pipe companies.

The increasing demand, reduced supply and enhanced value of water worldwide is a most basic fundamental even more important than oil! Here are five URLS from my archives about water. Read more tomorrow.
