Over the past 5 years, they have topped the US market

The S&P 500 stocks have seen their collective yearly sales per share jumped by about 4% on average every year over the past five years. The share price of the index and benchmark for the U.S. stock market ($3,401.20 as of Tuesday) gained 73.7% over the past five years through Sept. 15.

Thus, investors may want to consider the following stocks, as they have performed better than the S&P 500 in terms of a superior five-year revenue per share growth rate.

We list a few quality businesses poised to win over women's hearts

Demographic shifts matter in terms of their implication of tailwinds for businesses and investors. One of the most prominent is the aging population, as we have discussed previously. Meanwhile, we think that the expansive "sheconomy" should be as significant but appears to be less talked about.

This megatrend is underpinned by a combination of several demographic subtrends:

  1. A growing female labor participation rate.
  2. An increasing share of single women, whose purchase power generally outperforms the average.
  3. A narrowing wage gap between genders.

An intuitive approach for investors to look for companies providing products already over-indexed on

Brands like Procter & Gamble are losing to new attractions like Shopify

For years, big brands led the market higher. Whether it was Procter & Gamble (PG), Nike (NKE), Nestle (XSWS:NESN) or Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), investors flocked to these blue-chip stocks.

The rise of big brands makes sense given the historical paradigm. For decades, distribution, stocking and promotion were expensive activities. Only the biggest were able to compete. And the bigger a brand got, the stronger it became.

Let's use Procter & Gamble's Tide detergent as an example. Consumers love this brand. Since 1949, it's been the leading detergent in the U.S. This isn't necessarily because Tide

Discussion of markets and holdings

Dear investor,

The first half of the year has undoubtedly been marked by the health crisis of COVID-19 and its effects on our lives, the economy and the financial markets. To this day, we are still immersed in a deep crisis on many fronts, but it is also true that the months that have passed can give us a minimal perspective to better analyze the situation from different aspects:

A look at the athletic apparel brand's 2nd-quarter results

Last week, Under Armour (UA)(UAA) reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Revenue declined by 41% in the quarter to $708 million, led by a nearly 60% reduction in Wholesale revenues as roughly 80% of the locations where Under Armour products can be purchased around the world were closed throughout much of the quarter (direct-to-consumer sales declined 13%, with strength in e-commerce offset by the closure of company-owned doors).

A look at the company's fiscal 2020 financial results

On Thursday, Nike Inc. (NKE) reported results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

Revenue for the quarter declined by nearly 40%, which reflects the impact of retail closures around the world throughout much of the quarter. Revenue declined in all regions in the quarter, with Greater China showing minimal year-over-year growth (up 1%) on a constant currency basis.

The difficult results reflect the impact of Covid-19, which hurt Nike’s results in the third and fourth quarter. That led to a split for the year, with first-half revenues climbing by 9%, offset by a 17% decline in the back half

The footwear retailer has suspended dividends and commenced store openings

The brick-and-mortar retail industry has been among the worst-hit sectors as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even with the phased lifting of the lockdown and stores opening up, footfalls continue to be slow.

Footwear and sports apparel retailer Foot Locker Inc. (FL) is one such business, and this showed in its most recent results. The company has re-opened about 45% of its stores and expects business to slowly start picking up in the coming quarters.

After the suspension of dividends, the company is not a yield play for the time being, but I think the management is coping well

Some thoughts on stock performance, business performance and prospect

“I always tell students in business school they’d be better off when they got out of business school to have a punch card with 20 punches on it. And every time they made an investment decision, they used up one of their punches, because they aren’t going to get 20 great ideas in their lifetime. They’re going to get five or three or seven, and you can get rich off five or three or seven. But what you can’t get rich doing is trying to get one every day.”
