If I was a smart women I would have paid attention and sold the stock when it was around $25/share. Now it languishes around $1.50. No matter, we are fortunate to not need the money right now and I know there are a lot of people really impacted by the stock market.
For those people, as a mother, I have stock picks.
- Purchase stock in paper goods companies. Do you know how many napkins and paper towels households with children go through in one day?
- Invest in those that sell diapers and wipes. AK is 8 months old and already likes pulling wipes out of the container by the handful. Just like her big sister before her.
- Buy in to General Mills. All kids love Cheerios. I thought LP was over them and then I started buying them for AK, now we go through at least a box a month. Most of them end up on the floor.
