Whether it’s in my stock charts, on my scanners, or even just as I’m out and about, I’m always looking for the next big trading opportunity.
And this week, that opportunity took shape in the form of Tiger Woods as he reclaimed his golfing crown at the masters last weekend – winning his first major tournament since 2008.
That’s right – Tiger’s back! And believe it or not, that means your wallet could reap the rewards, too…
Because if the 2000s are any indication, we can expect to see some massive opportunities from golf stocks.
Golf is officially cool again.
Last Sunday, the sports world was rocked with one of the biggest comeback stories of all time. Tiger Woods won his 5th Masters and further closed the gap with Jack Nicklaus for the most majors wins – cutting the deficit to three.
First, Tiger’s first major win was the Masters Tournament in 1997.
At the young age of 21, he was the youngest and first African-American to win the Masters.
Now, he didn’t just win it – he blew the doors off with a whopping 12-stroke lead over the runner up Tom Kite and set a Masters record that still stands today.
Most will remember the emotional embrace Tiger had with his dad after sinking his last put in 1997.
And so began the world’s love affair with Tiger Woods… a love affair that rivaled or even surpassed Michael Jordan’s.
People from all races, age groups and nationalities jumped on the Tiger band wagon. Heck, they jumped on the golf band wagon.
Even younger people began to jump into golf, wanting to be like Tiger and golf’s popularity exploded all across the country.
Fortunately, Tiger wasn’t a flash in the pan and went on to generate some amazing stats including:
- 15 major PGA tournament wins (2nd behind Jack Nicklas with 18)
- 81 PGA tour victories (2nd behind Sam Snead with 82).
- 7 consecutive PGA tour wins in 2007-2007 (2nd behind Nelson’s 11 in 1945).
- Lowest scoring average in PGA history at 68.17 in 2000.
After winning the 2008 U.S. Open, Tiger began an 11-year major drought. Instead of being publically heralded for PGA wins, Tiger was on the news for a DUI arrest, infidelity, and divorce. He also suffered physically with multiple knee and back surgeries.
Now until 2018, it seemed that Tiger would never return to his original glory. I remember hoping, even praying that Tiger would “get it back” during his drought. It was sad. You could feel everyone, even other PGA players, wanting him to “get it back.”
That’s what makes his Masters win this past weekend so special. Against all odds, Tiger did it. Tiger is back.
And with his comeback – golf got a new breath of life.
So, here’s how you can juice the biggest profits from Tiger’s big win…
Here are the top five to consider:
- Callaway Golf, Company (NYSE: ELY), a $1.5 billion manufacturer of golf equipment and apparel was up 3.55% on Monday.
- Acushet Holdings Company (NYSE: GOLF), a $1.8 billion manufacturer of golf products and best known for Titleist golf balls was up 2.05% on Monday.
- Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE), a $109 billion behemoth with a large line of Tiger golf products should do nicely over the coming months and was up over 1% on Monday.
- EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR) is a $5.95 billion real estate company that houses TopGolf driving ranges.
- Comcast Corporation (NYSE: CMCSA), a $189 billion telecom conglomerate which owns the Golf Channel (which is owned by NBC Sports a subsidiary of the NBC Universal division of Comcast).
And on top of this incoming golf boost, EPR and CMCSA have meteorically bullish stock charts.
Now, these are just a handful of stocks involved in the golf industry that could pay out big – but if you’re looking to cash in on this booming game – a long call or call spread is the best way to play it.
But before I go, there’s one more thing I need to say – Go Tiger!
I’ll talk to you soon,
