Lust: Rick’s Cabaret International
Is there anything more lust-inducing than a lap dance?
If you’re thinking lap dances (well, and ones provided by a publicly traded company), you’ve gotta think Rick’s Cabaret International (RICK). The gentlemen’s club operator has locations across the U.S. and South America, including a New York location that brands itself as “the No. 1 strip club in the city, featuring the most beautiful women in the world daily.”
Yup. For lust, this one’s a gimme.
InvestorPlace contributor Larry Meyers discussed RICK late last year, touting it as a long-term bargain proposition. The first sentence in his bull case? “Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned.”
Of course, looking backward, Rick’s hardly seems like a stock you could go steady with (unsurprisingly). It has been a roller coaster over the past year, with its return ending slightly in the red thanks to the market’s recent downturn.
Still, 40% annualized growth expected to come during the next five years is plenty to lust after.
