Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Dan Caplinger, and Cory Renauer]

    Doubling your money in a relatively short time is much tougher. It typically involves investing in younger, less established companies that have lots of growth potential but could give a lot of ground if a few things don’t swing their way. There are, though, some stocks that look like they have a double in them over a relatively short time frame, and three of our investing contributors think Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ONCE), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: National Beverage Corp.(FIZZ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jeremy Bowman]

    The company appears to have solved that problem by remaking itself as a sparkling water brand. Not only does that make the product more attractive from a pricing perspective as it’s competing with more expensive bottled waters, but the company is now benefiting from tailwinds in consumer trends as more consumers are drinking bottled and sparkling water in part because of its perceived health benefits compared to soda.Shares ofNational Beverage(NASDAQ:FIZZ) have soared recently on the strength of LaCroix, the flavored sparkling water brand that has developed a following among millennials. In the U.S., sparkling water sales were expected to grow by more than a third last year and from 2011 to 2017 sales of the fizzy water.

    But in the world of investing, it’s vital that we be able to trust the numbers companies report, and the Securities and Exchange Commission isn’t entirely sure we can when it comes to National Beverage (NASDAQ:FIZZ), seller of sparkling water LaCroix, as well as classic soda brands Faygo and Shasta. In essence, the SEC suggested that the company was being a bit too creative in terms of the metrics it was using to describe sales growth — possibly because the metrics themselves didn’t have a clear definition. So, what should Foolish investors think about all this? The guys have some advice.

    I’ve personally made several profitable investments over the last decade by simply observing my own buying habits. Here are a few recent examples:

    My family rarely eats out, but when we do we like to buy from healthier quick-service restaurants, such asChipotle (NYSE:CMG) or Panera Bread, instead of full-service restaurants or traditional fast food placesWendy’s or McDonald’s. My wife and I have eliminated soda from our lives. The only beverages that I drink now are water andStarbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) coffee. My wife prefers to drink sparkling water like National Beverages’ (NASDAQ:FIZZ) La Croix brand. We mostly buy organic food and we love to shop at stores like Whole Foods (now owned by Amazon.com) and Trader Joes. We ditched cable a few years ago and now all of our entertainment needs aremet by streaming services that are offered by Amazon.com, Netflix, and Alphabet’s YouTube. Most of our household items and gifts that are purchased online at Amazon.com or Wayfair.

    I’d bet that if you reviewed your credit card statements, you’d quickly recognize a few patterns as well. Ask yourself: Are there anyretails stores or restaurant concepts that you frequent now but didn’t before? Are there any new foods or drinks that you now buy from the grocery store? Have you become a raving fan of a particular website or app?

    Against that backdrop, you might assume it’s best to avoid the soda industry altogether. However, there’s still a soda company for growth-oriented investors: National Beverage Group (NASDAQ:FIZZ).
