Eagle Eye Opener: Try Profiting Every Day the Sun Rises; Lunch is Not Free but Restaurant Stocks Can Bring You Profits

Eagle Eye Opener

Try Profiting Every Day the Sun Rises

Investors should take note of today’s midday playoff baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals that likely will feature a number of players from both teams donning eyewear from Luxottica (LUX), whose brands include Ray Bans, Oakley, LensCrafters and Sunglass Hut. You likely know the brands but not the publicly traded company behind those well-known names. However, the company’s visibility could be on the rise and offer investors who see the proverbial light a chance to profit. Last Sunday, Oct. 7, the widely viewed CBS television news magazine “60 Minutes” featured LUX. As an investor, you’d be hard pressed to find a play more independent of broader-market movement than eyeglass or sunglass makers. Bull or bear, people need to see and LUX’s year-to-date gain of 25.4% bears that out. Keep that situation in mind as you watch the daytime baseball games during the MLB postseason that will culminate with the World Series.

Lunch is Not Free but You Still Can Profit (Politic365)

Is your company’s dine-out lunch crowd about to return? Yes, according to urban research and digital media group Politic365.com. And investors in the world’s largest restaurant chains are banking on it. Shareholders in Darden Restaurants (DRI) couldn’t agree more, as the company’s year-to-date share price is up 23%. Darden’s eateries include the following up-scale chains: Red Lobster, Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse, to name a few. Another strong performer is Yum Brands! (YUM), up 14% so far this year. The Yum Brands! stable of chains includes KFC, Pizza Hut and WingStreet restaurants. If you too believe this back-to-lunch trend will continue, you could do worse than getting into strongly performing DRI or YUM.
