Consumer stocks as a whole are among some of the biggest beneficiaries of the current nine-year bull market. However, as we move through a period of uncertainty and change where tariffs and trade wars could affect some of these very same companies, investors need any edge they can get to make money in the years ahead.

Technology may be that edge. It’s already playing a large role in the success and failure of many of this country’s biggest consumer stocks, and tech looks to be an even greater determinant of who wins and loses five to 10 years from now.

RBC Capital Markets recently took out its futurist cap, producing a study entitled “Imagine 2025,” which highlights the six themes it feels will drive business growth over the next seven years – and the stocks that will benefit as a result.


The themes mostly revolve around technology, but RBC also has addressed non-tech issues such as climate change, population growth, urbanization and others to develop a list of 69 companies it feels will lead the way through 2025.

The following are five of the best consumer stocks to buy right now. What makes them stand out from the rest is that each utilizes one or more of RBC’s “Imagine 2025” themes to deliver better-than-average shareholder returns.
