The best stocks to trade on Black Friday; originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. Today is Black Friday. Yes, also for the financial markets is this calendar date a very meaningful event. It is the first day of the pre Christmas shopping season which indicates the strength of the full period. People searching for the best offers, the most attractive deals and spend as much money as their credit card allows. Some companies will benefit from Black Friday and the pre Christmas shopping season. Investors should be careful by buying Black Friday stocks.

I made a screen of well-known stocks which have an exposure to the current event. They are well diversified and should not have a higher downside risk if the sales numbers are weaker than expected. If you like the theme shopping and consumer goods and you like to buy stocks from several industries covering these ideas then you should take a look at the list of the 20 Black Friday stocks below.

The Black Friday shopping stock list consists of twenty stocks with consumer focus (apparel, jewelry, retail electronics and food). Most of them pay dividends and the average stocks is expected to grow in earnings by a double-digit amount. Below the results is one high-yield and sixteen have a current buy or better rating by brokerage firms.

    Retailers are notorious for setting the bar too high, investors hear good numbers and get excited and stocks get bid up in anticipation. The expectations never seem to materialize. That’s partly why short sellers are poised to benefit if retail stocks start lagging the broad market.
