NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Last weekend, I was clicking around Forbes.com, checking out what is going on in the market. I ran across an excellent article by Richard Lehmann, How to Get Income Without Growth. It was uplifting and solid and Lehmann gave excellent recommendations of regarding Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) and closed-end funds, including Williams Partners (WPZ).
But then, as I was starting to research MLPs, my attention was stolen by this ....
The Business Of Hockey
... and that was that.
It's exciting in hockey right now. The LA Kings leading one game to none in the Stanley Cup championship final against the New York Rangers. (Go Kings!)
Now suppose you wanted to invest in companies to support the sport you love? Here are some suggestions: and otherwise take note of companies that may benefit during the NHL hockey playoffs.
Here are some suggestions:
There are a few companies related to hockey whose stock I would like to buy, but can't because they are privately held including, Sports Authority, Hockey Monkey (Monkey Sports, Inc.), Hockey Giant (SportsGiant), Easton, Warrior, and Zamboni. Yes, Zamboni, the ice rink cleaner company.
Other companies that might score from a successful NHL playoff include the teams' sponsors, such as Wells Fargo (WFC), McDonald's (MCD), Toyota (TM), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Anheuser-Busch (BUD), Coca-Cola (KO), Delta (DAL), AT&T (T), and the Bank of Montreal (BMO), all listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
