Monetizing the Obesity Theme

Merrill Lynch has a research

report up on its website on how best to invest in "the emerging obesity

epidemic". Check out Table 5, "Stocks that represent the ML Obesity

Theme," all the way from Alizyme PLC through Wild Oats Markets.

"The developed world is getting older and fatter," writes analyst

Jose Rasco. "People are increasingly eating more proteins and processed

foods, leading more sedentary lives and gaining weight." The number of

obese people worldwide is projected to rise to 700 million in 2015 from 400

million in 2005. But every cloud has a silver lining: Merrill Lynch is here

to help you monetize that trend. After all, if you don’t make money from fat

people, someone else will.
