Zombie Apocalypse Stocks

November 14, 2013

Investor’s Business Daily:: “Zombie Apocalypse Stock Portfolio Triples In 3 Years” by Ed Carson:

The zombie portfolio of seven stocks — SolarCity (SCTY), Generac (GNRC), Sturm Ruger (RGR), Smith & Wesson (SWHC), Cabela’s (CAB), GNC (GNC) and Pall Corp. (PLL) — has soared by 230% since “The Walking Dead” premiered on Oct. 31, 2010. That compares to 50% for the S&P 500 index.

And in video segment at Fox Business: “Invest in zombie apocalypse stocks?” featuring CapitalistPig Hedge Fund’s Jonathan Hoenig interviewed by Melissa Francis.

Francis was “blown away” by the stocks’ performance but Hoenig says:

You can’t discount the fact these zombie stocks are doing particularly well, but I tell you, if you look underneath the hood, Melissa, they’re benefiting not so much because of zombies but really much more because of government…

Explaining that “pending government regulations” is pushing gun sales.

Perhaps coincidentally, when I watched the whole 5 minute video segment on the Fox website, it automatically queued as the next video: “American cities vulnerable to large-scale cyber attack” — is that just a coincidence in my browser or did Fox intentionally pair zombies and cyber-attacks? (Cf. zombie hackers)
