Consumer Stocks and How to Cook a Turkey
The Motley Fool is running a 12 Days of Christmas article theme and the lead editor was foolish (Foolish?) enough to let me have day 5. Yes, a gold theme would have made sense, but I already had a theme. A consumer staples watchlist built from a shopping list.
Shopping lists for a holiday supper get turned into stock lists. Some charcoal gets Clorox (CLX) on the list, coffee means Smucker (SJM) joins the brew, beer brings BUD - you get the idea.
Only The Fool could bring you stock picks with one stand-out AND a hint on cooking a turkey all in one short page. I ran a Google search and proudly claim the first use of the term 'turkey cannon' on Fool.com. This piece was the most fun I've had writing since my TARPedBanks player snagged Bottom Fool.
