    There are several parts of the value chain that create natural and organic goods:

    Individual organic farmers, who you largely cannot invest in. Producers of organic foods, who take farmer’s goods and combine them for consumption. This includes players likeHain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN),SunOpta, andLifeway Foods. Grocers with a focus on natural and organic goods, which originally includedWhole Foods (now owned by Amazon),Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM), andNatural Grocers — what I refer to as “pure-play,” which are grocers with a sole focus on organic. But the list now includes big names likeKroger(NYSE:KR),Costco(NASDAQ:COST), andWalmart(NYSE:WMT). Distributors specializing in natural and organic food, primarilyUnited Natural Foods.

    When the Great Recession hit, many of these pure-play natural and organic companies (read: not Costco, Walmart, or Kroger) were devastated. Consumers were pinching pennies and unwilling to pay the extra money for organic fruits.

In the absence of major news, investors seemed content to let positive trends from earlier in the week continue to play out, anticipating a favorable end to the first-quarter earnings season and hoping for more progress on the macroeconomic and geopolitical fronts to defuse potential controversies.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own For 2019: Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft (VLKAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    I drove the QX30 for a few days and it was a bit of a doozy. The thing I like the most about the QX30 is its styling. It is basically a Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) (OTCPK:VLKAF) Golf type of a hatchback, but it looks very good, especially from the rear and from the rear profile. Very similar to the Mazda 3, it looks a lot wider than it is.

The S&P 500 fell 0.4% this week after rising 0.3% to2,372.60 today, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.5% this week after advancing44.79 points, or 0.2%, to20,902.98 today. The Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.2% this week after gaining 0.4% to5,861.73 today.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite snapped six-week winning streaks, while the Dow ended a four-week winning streak.

Wellington Shields’ Frank Gretz notes that the “market is supposed to be anticipatory.” He explains:

Opinions follow price memories do as well. If higher prices alone were not enough, the news always seems to improve as prices move higher. After all, the media always needs to explain the higher prices, and the good therefore becomes the emphasis. For example, theres little talk of the all-but-certain pending rate hike. Since the election the market has had a remarkable run, one built more on policy hope than policy reality. This complaint is met with the retort that it has only been 50 days, or whatever. Fair enough, but the point remains. Then, too, the market is supposed to do this, its supposed to be anticipatory. Investors are getting this, and hence, what has been persistent strength. Interestingly, investors will begin to believe they always got it no one was really worried about a possible trade war, and so on. The psychologist Baruch Fischhoff called this creeping determinism, the idea that unexpected events turn into the expected. In other words, we will remember being more bullish in November than we were.
