Are you scared of another four years of the Obama administration? Forget another four years—let’s look at the first four years. We’ve constructed an index to show you how scary it has been. The Young Research Survival Index includes companies like Campbell’s Soup; Sturm, Ruger & Co.; Hormel, Smith & Wesson; Generac; Goldcorp; Barrick Gold; Lancaster Colony; and Energizer. These are companies selling canned goods, gold, guns and ammo, batteries, generators, and all manner of survival material. As Americans become more worried about their failed government, they’re stocking up on these survival goods en masse. As you can see by the performance of the stocks, demand has been through the roof.
The index is rebased to 0 on January 19, 2009, President Obama’s inauguration. The value of the index today indicates the percentage growth or decline in the market value of the stocks in our index (market-cap-weighted with a 15% cap). Today, the index stands at 95.5%. That means that since President Obama took office, the value of our Survival Stocks has increased by 95.5%! If he wins again, invest in the Survival Index and maybe you’ll make your Obama money.
