In the article, using the basic principles of portfolio analysis according to 2013-2017, the dynamics of the productivity of the main agricultural crops, including separately grain and leguminous crops, and the production of basic livestock products was studied. The analysis was carried out using the «Profit-Risk» model, which is based on the basic provisions of the portfolio analysis of G. Markowitz. Based on the results of the global optimization, a group of lines of activity was formed that provided the best (in terms of profitability to risk) investment conditions. This is the cultivation of legumes and vegetables, the production of livestock, poultry, pigs and eggs and milk yield. The results of correlation analysis indicate that the synthesized group of leaders' directions can be considered as the simplest portfolio with equal weights, since there is no close relationship between them. The revealed groups of widely diversified leading directions make it possible to build investment strategies for agricultural enterprises.
