4 Consumer Stocks For Your November 2021 Watchlist

While the stock market today continues to gain, consumer stocks remain a hot topic amongst investors. After all, we are entering a crucial time of the year for the industry now. This would be the case as the year-end holiday season is fast approaching while supply chain woes among other things persist. Not to mention, there is also the current momentum in consumer stocks thanks to a strong earnings season for the sector. After considering all of these factors, I could understand if investors are watching consumer stocks closely now.

At the same time, some of the biggest names serving consumer markets now continue to up their game as well. This is evident given Coca-Cola’s (NYSE: KO) and Walmart’s (NYSE: WMT) latest moves. On one hand, Coca-Cola is acquiring sports drink retailer Bodyarmor for a whopping $5.6 billion. This would mark the company’s largest-ever brand acquisition. The likes of which will ideally bolster Coca-Cola’s standing in the increasingly popular sports drink industry.

On the other hand, Walmart seems to be taking the ongoing labor shortage and supply chain weaknesses head-on. Namely, the retail juggernaut is holding a national supply-chain hiring event this week. According to Walmart, supply chain associates will be receiving a $20.37 per hour wage on average. By and large, we could be looking at exciting times ahead for consumer-focused industries. On that note, here are four top consumer stocks to know in the stock market now.
