I’ll admit it. The traditional grocery business isn’t an exciting industry for investment potential. Profit margins are low, with almost zero chance of spiking higher. Meaningful sales growth is hard to find, too. And grocery stores suffer from the constant threat of having more nimble retailers push into their markets, as we saw with Amazon.com’s latest expansion of its food delivery business. However, the safest path to big investment returns is through buying into years of predictable growth at a reasonable price. That’s why I think Kroger (NYSE: KR  ) stock could be a great option for long-term investors right now.

Overall, real estate investment trusts (REITs) managed to provide investors with a 17.8% annualized return from 2010 through 2012. Those gains continued into the beginning of 2013.

Think about a couple of questions you wouldn’t want to be asked on a first date. Topping the list are probably personal questions like “how much do you weigh?” or even “how old are you?” Revealing this information is embarrassing for many people who are insecure about one or the other, and would rather keep the details hidden from strangers. Worse, though, imagine being asked how much money you have in your bank account, perhaps after expressing interest in the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu.

The best answer regarding the commonality between CYTR and ACUR at this point is that both are actionable, even of for totally different reasons/totally different directions. A closer look at each is merited. If the name CytRx Corporation seems vaguely familiar, it may be because yours truly penned some bullish thoughts on the biotech stock just a few days ago, on December 29th.
