ABOUT THE FOOD & RESTAURANT INDUSTRY

As humans, we require food. That need to eat isn’t going anywhere, so food will always be in both high demand and high production. This makes their stock a stable and profitable one to own – either through commodities, restaurant stocks, packaged food stocks or grocery store stocks.

Here are three subsets of the food industry:

Farming

Farming includes all businesses involved in the production and collection of raw agricultural commodities. This includes things like corn, wheat, soybeans, rice etc.

Processing

Next those raw material foods must be processed into forms that may be more easily distributed and later sold to consumers.

Distributing

The next step is getting the finished or unfinished food products into the hands of hungry consumers. Grocers are the distributors for “unfinished” food products (customers will buy them and cook meals at home), while both fast food and upscale restaurants distribute finished products.

Tip #1 is that you need to buy them as soon as you get the alert because the stocks typically rise 2-5% in the first 24 hours of the pick being released. Tip #2 is that I buy about $2,000 of each pick and I immediately place a 20% stop loss order to control risk.  Two of their picks got stopped out in the last 12 months. Tip #3 is that their next stock pick should come out about May 7th, so make sure you have subscribe now so you are ready. Tip #4 is to always read your emails from the Fool because they do tell you when to sell stocks. Tip #5 is to use this link to their new subscriber page to save 50% (it will be just $99 a year).
