Time to face the foul facts, America. To profit amid our economic pain you may have no choice but to dive headlong into the muck.
From cat litter to contraception, stool softeners to stain removers the most disgusting products are typically the most indispensable.
Because what we do every day in the privacy of our own homes we're going to do regardless of a recession.
So how can you reap rewards from the repulsive?
You may want to kneel at the altar of Church & Dwight . From wax strips and laxatives to denture adhesives and disinfectants this consumer products colossus boasts a truly odious array.
And in February, it forecast 2008 earnings above Wall Street estimates meaning you may be in for a putrid but profitable year.
I think Church & Dwight is an unbelievable growth stock, says Guy Adami. And I like their valuations better than Procter & Gamble .
Johnson & Johnson is another name to watch, adds Pete Najarian.
