Investing in the riots and chaos of #blacklivesmatter

A patriarch of probably the richest family on the planet once said, "The time to buy is when there is blood on the streets, even if the blood is your own."  And this proved true during following the 1929 stock market crash, the aftermath of 9/11, and of course more recently, following the Brexit vote in Britain.

But in America the most prominent bit of chaos ravaging the country is the actions of the organization known as Black Lives Matter, and those who are using this movement to commit horrific acts of terror, murder, and mayhem.

And indeed, with several incidents of cop killing being manifested in less than 10 days time this month, the blood is 'on the streets', and people are becoming afraid to even leave their homes beyond necessary activities such as taking the kids to school, or going to work.

So how can someone invest and profit from the chaos that is emerging from the riots of #blacklivesmatter?  Simple... look for what many people will do to keep from having to leave their homes for non-essential or random trips in public.  And one of these items is having meals delivered where someone else must take the risk of going out for you.

"After speaking with several large operators and industry contacts, we believe the recent decline in casual dining restaurant segment fundamentals—traffic down 3% to 5% the past several weeks—may be the result of consumers eating more at home amid the current political/social backdrop, which we believe could last through the November election,” KeyBanc analysts wrote in a note published Tuesday, cited by MarketWatch. Diners’ shift to a preference for convenience will benefit pizza delivery businesses like Papa John’s, according to KeyBanc. - Zerohedge
