8 Stocks That Could Gain With Rising GDP
Began: March 2001
Ended: November 2001
Number of months: 8
First quarter of GDP growth: Q4 2001
Top performing sectors: Information Technology
Based on the trends found, we conducted a screen looking for stocks in the sectors most prevalent amongst the top performers during past recoveries, with EPS growth estimates greater than 100 percent for the forward fiscal year, and with a PEG ratio less than 1. Additionally, we weighted the findings towards the most recent recessions, assuming that the industrial successes of earlier recessions might be not as representative today.
The results yielded eight companies belonging to the consumer discretionary and information technology sectors. Here is a look at those companies.
