The fairly quiet company hidden in Switzerland is a commodities giant. Though Glencore prefers to keep away from the media spotlight, everything from smartphones to sugar are impacted by the raw materials the company mines. The vertically-integrated company touches agriculture, energy, and metals by shipping and trading them. However, the company’s in a rut with commodities dropping in price and costs piling up. Investors urged the company to cut costs and control spending.
