Ever heard of the famous "herd-stocks": FANG >> FB, AMZN, NFLX, Alphabet(Google), or
NOSH >> NIKE, O'Reilly, Starbucks, Home Depot? All delivered a great outperformance versus S&P 500 in the year 2015:
Following comparison betweeen the FANG & the NOSH Group outlays the 2,5%-performance, which these 8 stocks cumulatively added to the S&P 500-index in the period Jan. 2015 - Nov. 2015:
Thinking about NOSH I came up with my other selection of stocks, which were nice to be held in the wobbly 2015:
>> my own word/group-creation "SLAM": Skechers, Lowe's, Autozone, McDonald's.
Whether it's SKX, LOW, AZO, or MCD, all of them delivered a nice Outperformance versus the broad US-Stock-Market.
The reasons for the outperformance of these stocks my be found in the sustainable trends in the subcategories:
AutoParts, Food/Services, Online, Home Improvement Stores
