How to Invest in Valentine’s Day

by Fred Fuld III

There are just a couple days left to shop for Valentine’s Day. Why not give your loved one a Valentines stock, instead of one of the typical ones. The Valentines stocks include those that sell chocolate, jewelry, greeting cards, and gift wrap.

Here is a stock that is not very well know but very gift oriented. CSS Industries Inc. (CSS) markets gift wrap, gift bags, boxed greeting cards, gift tags, tissue paper, decorations, and decorative ribbons and bows. The stock trades at 7.8 times forward earnings, and pays a generous forward dividend yield of about 10%.

Flowers are always popular. 1-800-Flowers.com Inc. (FLWS) is the largest publicly traded company of flowers, plus it markets cakes, cookies, candy, wines, gift baskets, and other goodies for your valentine. The stock trades at 45.9 times forward earnings, and a price to sales ratio of 0.93.

 Unless they have an allergy, all valentines like chocolate. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Inc. (RMCF), based in Durango, Colorado produces and sells various types of chocolate candy including caramels, creams, mints, and truffles. The company was founded in 1981, has over 300 franchise locations. The price to earnings ratio is 21.2. Rocky Mountain pays a very tasty dividend yield of 5.5%.

What valentine doesn’t like jewelry? Something like a Platinum Pear Cut Emerald And Round Diamond Pendant would make a nice gift. The price is only $120,443 and is available through Amazon (AMZN).

Tiffany (TIF), founded in 1837, is one of the largest jewelry companies in the world, with over 60 U.S. stores and numerous international locations. The stock trades at 16.8 times forward earnings. This stock also pays a dividend, with a decent yield of 2.5%.
