7 outdoor recovery stocks for growth and dividends
If Americans used to enjoy outdoor activities, now they love them even more. The COVID-19 pandemic has done many things, and one of them is enlivening Americans’ love for the outdoors. Data from across the industry shows a sustained surge in sales with the entire complex moving up.
For example, the Association of the RV Industry reports that RV deliveries increased more than 30% in 2020 and are expected to increase by a further 20% or more in 2021. If data from the two largest manufacturers in the industry are any indication, this is a very conservative forecast.
And the profits aren’t limited to RVs. Everything to do with outdoor recreation is booming. A well-known retail and nature brand, Dicks Sporting Goods sales have seen a sustained 20% increase in sales since the Q2 shutdown. If anything, revenues in this sector are being held back by rapidly falling inventory levels and tight shipping conditions.
The stocks we want to show all have something in common; outside. Within the group you will find everything from mobile homes to radios and everything an outdoor enthusiast might need or want. Some pay dividends, some don’t, but all will bring solid returns for investors in 2021.
