2 Consumer Stocks to Trade Just in Time for the Holidays

by | Nov 24, 2021 | Market Updates

Our WealthPress office is closed Thursday in observance of Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and may your day be filled with food and cheer!

Instead of our regular stock market recap, I’m bringing you something a little bit different.

I want to highlight two consumer staples stocks that would make a great addition to your portfolio ahead of the holidays.

Consumer discretionary and tech stocks have been ruling the market, but as we’ve seen this past week, they’ve started to pull back, as evidenced by the drop in the Nasdaq.

We’re going to see some rotation into consumer staples as this continues to happen, with investors prioritizing blue-chip, dividend-paying stocks as they seek out safety and stability. 

The first is General Mills Inc. (NYSE: GIS), which was also one of my favorite summer consumer staples stocks.

It’s a global company responsible for a lot of the brands many people know and love: Cheerio’s, Annie’s, Yoplait, Nature Valley, Fiber One, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury and many more…

For the first quarter of 2022, the company reported a profit of $0.99 per share, or about $4.5 billion in sales, representing 4% growth compared to the same quarter last year. The company also maintained its full-year growth outlook.

The second is a consumer staples titan of industry, manufacturing and selling a wide range of consumer goods, everything from cleaning supplies to personal care products to even childcare necessities.

P.S. Combat Inflation With This Strategy… 

Wall Street knows the key way to beat inflation is by trying to flood the stocks that are set to outperform.

It just makes sense… 

But what if I said there’s a way to uncover those stocks before the giant surge? 

Well, thanks to this stock market trigger that’s already allowed me to lock in winners like 36.92% on APTV in seven days… 53.66% on PWR in four days… and even 83.87% on ALB in six days….

Everyday traders can follow along now!

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.

Everything Everywhere, Going Down, All At Once

When our momentum reading went negative last week, I didn’t know that we’d have the second largest bank failure in U.S. history three days later. All I knew was that it went negative… and that we got out of the way.
