Four Stocks to Consider as We Close 2015

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS). I was recommending the stock that day because it had shown solid growth over the past few months and its share price had nearly doubled in the last three years—a rather impressive resume!

I’ve been pleased with DPS’s overall performance since that time, so today, I thought we’d run the whole Industry (Beverages – Soft Drinks) through the Turner Analytics database to see if there were other good stocks to consider.

Overall, the data showed that Beverages – Soft Drinks is very strong. The Industry average has outperformed the S&P 500 average all year, and it continues to gain momentum. Its technical signs are bullish, and the Turner Analytics database categorizes the Industry as a long-term hold.

Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (COKE), which has seen a 106% increase in share price over the past 12 months, is the highest-rated stock in the Industry right now. But there are several other stocks worth noting, too. Let’s look at a few of them.

Ticker Fundamental Score
(out of 100)
Technical Score
(out of 100)
Total Score
(out of 200)
Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Con. (COKE) 76 76 152
Monster Beverage Corp. (MNST) 60 86 146
Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (DPS) 48 65 113
National Beverage Corp. (FIZZ) 46 50 96

These four are especially notable because they have shown consistent growth and they all have a high Return on Equity (five out of five on the Turner Analytics scale). Any (or all) of these holdings could be profitable additions to your portfolio as we close out this year of trading.
