7 outdoor recreation stocks for growth and dividends
If Americans loved the outdoors before, they love them even more now. The COVID-19 pandemic has done a lot of things, and one of them is to reinvigorate Americans’ love of the outdoors. Data from across the industry shows a steady rise in revenue that drives up the entire resort.
The RV Industry Association, for example, reports that RV shipments increased by more than 30% in 2020 and are expected to increase by 20% or more in 2021. If data from the two largest manufacturers in the industry is any indication, this forecast is very conservative.
And the gains aren’t limited to recreational vehicles. Everything that has to do with outdoor recreation is booming. Sales of Dicks Sporting Goods, an iconic retail and outdoor brand, have seen a steady 20% increase in revenue since the Q2 closings. If anything, revenues in this industry are being held back by rapidly dwindling inventory and tight shipping conditions.
The actions we are going to show all have something in common; outside. Within the group you will find everything from RVs to radios and anything an outdoor enthusiast might need or want. Some pay dividends and some don’t, but all will deliver strong returns to investors in 2021.
