Wall Street’s Best Digest | September 9, 2021
Here is your September Wall Street’s Best Digest, issue 845.
Thank you to all who attended our Cabot Wealth Summit last month. It was an information-packed few days, with lots of new ideas shared by all of our analysts. We hope next year we can resume our in-person meetings, as we miss seeing you!
Despite COVID’s resurgence, the markets are holding up surprisingly well. The economy is still strong, housing is robust, but businesses need employees. The unemployment rate for August fell to 5.2%, but new jobs added were much less than anticipated. Once those numbers improve, and COVID recedes, we should be in for an even stronger economy. And that’s great news for the markets!
In this issue, our Spotlight Stock revisits an old favorite of mine—a net-lease REIT that has boosted its dividend for 31 consecutive years! In my Feature article, I discuss all the reasons why this stock has been a perennial winner.
In our Growth section, you’ll find a lot of familiar names, including companies in the retail, hospitality, and communications realms, as well as a couple of newer ones in the fast food franchising, and electric vehicle charging arenas. There are a lot of great names to choose from in Growth & Income, including many industrial-related companies, as well as a home products and chemical manufacturer.
Our Financial offerings include a bank and a money exchange company. And in Healthcare, you’ll find options in biopharma, equipment, and 3-D. And speaking of 3-D, our contributors for technology stocks include one of those companies, as well as a semiconductor, cloud, and two payments businesses.
Resources, Energy, and Utilities continue to be popular fields, as our advisors offer several utilities and midstream energy companies here. Our Low-Priced Stocks are in two relatively new arenas—carbon credits and lab-grown gems. And in Preferred Stocks, High Yield, & REITs, you’ll find a couple of investment/capital corporations.
Lastly, our Funds & ETFs provide a variety of ideas, including cryptocurrency, consumer staples, alternative energy, and water sustainability.
Don’t forget to tune into my monthly Platinum Club webinars. Our October program is scheduled for October 6, at 2pm Eastern. And as always, please don’t hesitate to email me with your feedback and questions. My address is email@example.com.
