Mother’s Day Stocks To Boost Your Portfolio
George Leong: Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and it’s not too late to begin thinking about how to celebrate and reward good old mom for all those years of managing the household.
Of course, what always comes to mind are flowers, a special dinner, or perhaps a show or gift to display your appreciation.
So whether it’s from you to your mom or for your wife from your kids, it’s not a day to forget—trust me, you’ll be in the dog house if you do. (I know that’s what would happen in my case!)
Given that, it doesn’t hurt to browse around for something for your portfolio while your mind is in Mother’s Day shopping mode.
Here are three examples of the stocks you could consider as an investment opportunity that could benefit from this day, based on my stock analysis.
First of all, what woman doesn’t want flowers? A decent investment opportunity, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLWS) is worth a look.
The online operator sells market-fresh flowers along with plants, gift baskets, gourmet foods, confections, candles, balloons, and stuffed animals.
I like 1-800-FLOWERS.COM as an investment opportunity.

The company attributed the decline to the winter conditions and the shift of Easter to the fiscal fourth quarter.
The quarter saw the addition of 675,000 new customers; 1.6 million customers ordered something during the quarter, according to the company.
