Spending on pet care continues to increase in good times and bad, and has posted a 10-year streak of annual sales growth.
Curated by Motif Investing
Americans are animal lovers. In fact, an American Pet Products Association survey showed 68% of US households – 82.5million – have at least one pet. And they're spending more on them than ever. Between 1994 and 2012, the pet product industry sales increased more than 3 times to $53.33 billion.
Pet parents love to indulge their furry friends, and new products are constantly emerging. Think organic food, premium shampoos, and doggie dental care. And the pampering doesn't stop in leaner economic times. Spending still grew between 2008 and 2010 – amid an economic recession. And, it's estimated we'll spend another $55 billion in 2013.
We identified US-listed stocks and American Depository Receipts of companies that are engaged in activities relevant to this watchlist's theme. We then filtered out companies that have a share price of less than $1.00 or a market capitalization less than $100 million, and excluded illiquid stocks by screening companies for liquidity i.e. average bid-ask spreads, dollar volume traded etc. Finally the proprietary Motif Optimization Engine determined the constituent stocks.
