7 actions to support your New Year’s resolutions
After a year like 2020, many Americans think that just getting to 2021 was enough. But for many people, the start of a new year still means making resolutions. And while many Americans are still waking up for Groundhog Day, there is hope that things will be drastically different in September than they are now.
Some of the more popular resolutions include losing weight, exercising more, or taking steps to better organize our life and / or business. And many pure-play companies are building on these trends and doing well.
As an alternative to this, you can also invest in businesses that are not pure pieces but can still benefit consumers looking to start over. Owning these stocks helps you manage your risk. If the trend continues, you can ride the wave. On the other hand, if the wave turns into a ripple, stocks have other catalysts to make them pass.
In this special presentation, we will examine these two categories. We have several pure-play companies that allow investors to buy shares in companies benefiting from these trends. We’ll also give you some stocks that fall into the latter category.
These are stocks that you can buy at any time and for a variety of reasons. However, they present some great buys at the start of the New Year.
