Companies and Sectors that are still Performing

Two lists. The first from Economix - private companies that are still performing well. The Top 3: Farm product raw material wholesalers, cattle ranching and farming, and support activities for mining. The second, from Forbes - what consumers are still buying. The Top 3: Smartphones, Video Games & Consoles and Gym memberships. I'm thinking I find the latter rather than the former list more credible, but for perspective, it's pretty amazing how spending priorities have changed over the years.

Of course, some companies who thought they were recession resistant just aren't (WSJ).
