Eat What You Love, Invest in What You Eat (CAKE, YUM, MCD, DRI, RUTH)
Benzinga's Options & Vol Edge just made over 300% on IBM for its subscribers. See the next pick here before its too late.
One beautiful aspect of the stock market is the ability to invest in things you love. Chances are that something you cherish is publicly traded. Can't take your eyes off that MacBook Pro? No problem, there's a stock for that (NASDAQ: AAPL). Have some favorite sweat-wicking workout clothes? Look no further than Under Armour (NYSE: UA) or Nike (NYSE: NKE).
This idea does not just apply to fancy material positions. Favorite restaurants can pose as investment ideas, as well.
We are nearing closer to February, so chances are those New Year's Resolutions may be wearing off. Those dining out options may be looking even more enticing as Valentine's Day approaches. Here are some delicious companies that are traded publicly.
If you are hungry for the Colonel's Original Recipe or Fourth Meal, Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM) might be for you. Yum!'s restaurants include KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and Long John Silver's. YUM is a holding in the S&P 500 index.
Got a craving for a Big Mac attack? Then head on over to McDonald's (NYSE: MCD). MCD is a S&P 500 holding, as well.
Do you crave sweet stocks? The Cheesecake Factory (NASDAQ: CAKE) is a publicly-traded company.
If these stocks are far too low-brow for you, there is always Ruth's Hospitality (NASDAQ: RUTH). Ruth's is home to higher-end dining like Ruth's Chris Steak House and Mitchell's Fish Market.
