Sex & Investing

What areas of investment will do well in a recesion and do really well in a booming economy?

Sex, Drugs & Alcohol

If you consider yourself a socially responsible investor then just do the opposite of what I am about to endorse.

SEX: Indulgences tend to increase during tough times. People are more frustrated, tend to work less and have more sex. One company that can make money when people have more sex is Rick’s Cabaret International (RICK) Find companies like this and they are a buy in my book.

Cigarettes: During good times people like to smoke cigarettes. During bad times people really really enjoy smoking cigarettes. If there is one part of human nature that has always been and most likely always will be is sin. Tobacco companies are everywhere and are easily found publicly traded. I am looking into a private equity company that may be involved in a big way in Cuba once Fidel carries on to the next realm. It is risky and I won't mention the name here but the sky is the limit with this one.

Drugs: People will need their medicine no matter what is on the news. It really is a matter of life or death with this one. Pfizer (PFE) is one that is positioned to stay king in my book.

Alcohol: Profit margins in spirits, beer and wine have been capitalized on forever by enterprising individuals and companies. Most vineyards are private but brewers and distillers are ubiquitously publicly traded. Find them and buy them.

Anytime you put money into a stock I recommend at least an hour of homework per week per stock. Common sense does make sense and you should read all the facts and look at the books, get to know the CEO and maybe even listen to a conference call before deciding to take the plunge. But as a rule of thumb..Sex, drugs and boos are going to be around for a long time to come. They should make you money in the good times and really make you money in the bad.
