You wrote, I think it's worthwhile to consider beaten down natural resource stocks.

OT, I know, but how do you play that? Commodity futures? Equipment manufacturers? Suppliers? Miners? Vertically integrated conglomerates? Stocks? Bonds? ETF or mutual funds?

At the moment beyond my broad stock index holdings, I also own two commodity ETFs, stock in Chevron, Oceaneering International, bonds from Transocean and convertible preferreds from Chesapeake Energy. Part of this is fairly recent, but now I'm pretty heavily concentrated in the traditional energy sector. What other natural resource plays are you thinking of? Miners? Metals? NatGas futures? (NatGas is up like 50% off of it's recent lows. Doesn't it feel a bit over-sold?)

What other natural resources are you investing in?
