We could all use the "luck of the Irish" sometimes.
And here on Wall Street, some companies, could use that "extreme good fortune" as well.
Same with JC Penney (JCP) - Get J. C. Penney Company, Inc. Report . The stock was down 62% last year but it's up 37% so far this year, so investors are starting to pay attention. But c'mon. Why do you even need to go to that store when you can order all your kids' clothes on Amazon?
But hey, everyone deserves another shot. So bring on the lucky shamrocks.
Oh and be sure to send them to the folks drowning in their green beer thanks to Apple too.
Companies like GoPro (GPRO) - Get GoPro, Inc. Class A Report and Fitbit (FIT) - Get Fitbit, Inc. Class A Report , are down 29% and 16%, year-to-date respectively, mainly because the camera on your iPhone and your new Apple watch easily replaced both of those products.
Now you'd think we'd be sending some lucky charms to Toys "R" Us as well, but we're not. The company has been saddled with debt for years and basically missed the online shopping boom.
But in an effort to send that "Irish luck" to the other companies we mentioned, we brought in some bagpipes.
