Hurricane Stocks On As Tropical Storm Matthew Heads For Central Caribbean Sea

The US National Hurricane Center just reported that tropical storm Matthew is heading for the Central Caribbean Sea. The tropical storm is moving west at 15 mph with max sustained winds of 65 mph.

Quanta Services provides infrastructure contracting services to the electric power, gas, telecommunications and cable television industries. After a big storm or flood, they are the emergency response team that will be the first on-site to repair down power lines and broken pipes.

Vulcan Materials produces construction aggregates such as crushed stone, sand, and gravel used in nearly all forms of construction. The thing I like about Vulcan Materials is that public spending will likely increase no matter who wins the Presidential election and that should bode well for construction materials providers like Vulcan.

I also like the Shooting Star pattern on Vulcan which means the stock is likely to pullback which would make for a better entry than Quanta Services.

For a shorter term swing trade, I like Generac Holdings Inc. which is a designer and manufacturer of power generation equipment and other engine powered products.

Notice the beautiful swings on Generac Holdings in the chart below.
