Trading at 16 times earnings and 11 times forward earnings, the agricultural commodity producer and provider certainly looks like a value play here. Shares are down 25 percent in the past year, and this insider buy comes near a 52-week low. Meanwhile, the low share price has pushed up the dividend to 3.5 percent here.
Action to take: Archer-Daniels Midland looks attractively priced here, and traders should consider buying shares under $38.00. Although the company is growing slowly and agricultural products are having a poor year, the company’s continued long-term success makes for an attractive buy during this market pullback.
Speculators may want to consider a leap—a long-dated option such as the January 2021 $50 calls, which can give you a chance to bet on a rally in shares for less than $50 per contract right now.
