5 Long-Term Trends You Should Be Invested In

Flowers Foods (FLO - Free Report) is another stock I like because its baked goods have taken the lead in things like non-GMO, gluten-free, HFCS-free and other categories. The company has a strategy of building specific brands that cater to specific needs.

Another stock that has the mission of changing people’s lifestyles by helping them incorporate healthy habits is Medifast (MED). The company has a unique sales model, where the sales force is recruited as “health coaches” to sell its products and programs.

Gold is a safe haven

Exposure to gold helps to hedge against market risk. Because when investors fear a market crash, they tend to park their money in gold, driving up metal prices. But when prices drop, consumers take to the market to buy jewelry. Additionally, the last couple of decades have seen some countries buying more gold, which has also been positive for prices. Since we are currently looking at market volatility for a number of reasons, investing a little money in the commodity or in certain stocks or ETFs might be a good idea.

Stocks: AngloGold Ashanti Limited (AU - Free Report) or Barrick Gold Corporation (GOLD - Free Report) could be worth adding right now. The ETFs look expensive.
