The Mother's Day Portfolio

It's that time of the year, Mother's Day. How about doing something different and buying your Mother some shares of stock? How about some shares in companies that benefit from Mother's Day. Candy is dandy, but flowers have powers. Here is your Mother's Day portfolio.

The number one name in chocolate is Hershey (HSY), one of the largest chocolate and candy companies in the world. Their P/E is 24.5 and the PEG is 2.4, with a decent yield of 2%.

There is also the small cap Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Inc. (RMCF), which has a product line that includes caramels, creams, mints, and truffles. P/E is 20, price sales ratio is 2.7 and their yield is 2.6% Inc. (FLWS), the largest publicly traded flower seller, markets not only flowers but plants, gourmet foods, cookies, cakes, candies, wine, gift baskets, and other gifts. They have a fairly high P/E of 60 but a very reasonable PEG of .91.

Author does not own any of the above.
