    “Boring” investing ideas for 2023


    January 2, 2023

    Don’t go chasing after the shiny new thing. With investing, the fun ideas can often get investors in a lot of trouble.

    Hyped EV stocks like Rivian, Lucid Motors and NIO ran near the top of 2022’s worst performers.

    Lists of “top-performing stocks of X year” get published each year — and they’re often names you never hear about.

    Let’s start 2023 off with some “boring” ideas:

    • Every year, Eddy Elfenbein of Crossing Wall Street (CWS) publishes a Buy List with 25 stocks he’ll hold for the year.
    • An equal position in his 25 stocks would have returned investors 9.28% in 2022 (far better than the S&P 500).

    This is his 18th year writing the list — and he’s got five new additions.

    1/ AmerisourceBergen is a drug wholesaler that rose 22% in the last three months of 2022 after raising its dividend.

    2/ Celanese is the world’s largest producer of chemicals like acetic acid — used in many manufacturing processes like acidizing oil and gas, producing drugs and vitamins and food processing.

    3/ Intuit owns some of the most crucial business software tools like TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mailchimp.

    4/ Middleby supplies kitchen equipment to restaurants and hotels.

    5/ Polaris manufactures snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles and other off-road vehicles, and has increased its dividend every year for the past 27 years.
