Today I like to hunt for the best consumer growth stock picks of the next year 2013. The consumer sector is one of my favorite investment areas.
Nearly half of my investments were made in consumer related product companies. I really love this sector due to the fact that there are so many well diversified companies with low risks.
Stocks from the sector raise dividends like clockwork and sharing their business success with shareholders.
