Most people follow the path of least resistance making poor dietary and health choices. People also spend their discretionary income and credit on retail, shiny computer gadgets, smartphones, and cable TV instead of on retirement savings. One can profit from this behavior by buying stock in companies that support other people's bad decisions.
I focus on investing long-term in high-quality, dividend-paying companies that tap into poor lifestyle choices across the economic spectrum.
I'm long on companies like Coca-Cola (sugar water), Kraft, and Mondelez (pre-packaged junk food), Altria and Philip Morris, Int (smokers), Abbott and AbbVie (drugs and equipment to treat poor lifestyle choices), Intel (computer chips to support shiny gadgets & now mobile phones too), Disney and Comcast for entertainment, internet and cable, and of course who can forget booze (Diageo) and lattes (Starbucks).
And since most people don't have a lot of money saved, one can profit from stores that sell cheap clothing (TJX Companies), banks to lend them money (Wells Fargo), and energy to move them about and heat their homes (Williams Companies and Chevron).
My complete portfolio currently consists of the following stocks:
AbbVie Inc (ABBV)
Abbott Laboratories (ABT)
Chevron Corporation (CVX)
Diageo Plc (DEO)
Emerson Electric Co (EMR)
Gramercy Properties Trust (GPT)
The Home Depot (HD)
Intel Corporation (INTC)
The Coca-Cola Company (KO)
The Kraft Heinz Company (KHC)
McCormick & Company (MKC)
Mondelez International Inc (MDLZ)
Altria Group Inc (MO)
Norfolk Southern Company (NSC)
Proctor & Gamble (PG)
The TJX Companies, Inc. (TJX)
Union Pacific Corporation (UNP)
The Walt Disney Company (DIS)
Wells Fargo & Co (WFC)
Williams Companies (WMB)

Analyst and Fund Manager with almost 20 years investment experience. Coverage includes a variety of industries, with a focus on technology.
Particularly focused on value stocks, poorly understood or under-followed situations, and contrarian perspectives.
Primarily invest in special situations with value that is poorly understood or not fully appreciated, or where we believe there is a highly asymetric risk/reward profile. Also look for long/short ideas in mid/larger cap names where we believe we have a variant view, and the market is dramatically mispricing value.

Ashraf Eassa is a technology specialist with The Motley Fool. He writes mostly about technology stocks, but is especially interested in anything related to chips -- the semiconductor kind, that is.
I am currently a Junior at the George Washington University and have been investing since the sixth grade with my own money. I am very interested in the pharmaceutical sectors, but will buy just about any stock if I feel that the company is undervalued. I hope to provide some helpful insight, and to in turn learn a lot from the rest of the investment community.
