The Vice Fund (VICEX): Booze Gets A Boost

24 Feb

Vice Fund (symbol: VICEX) maintains holdings of companies in alcoholic beverages.

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2022 / — While growth technology stocks have outperformed value stocks the last 10 years; the Vice Fund (symbol: VICEX) maintains holdings of companies in alcoholic beverages that historically generate profits and pay dividends.

The rising use of e-commerce and delivery, growth in demand for premier spirits, and the desire for more experiential drinking are all current trends in the alcohol and adult beverage industry. Slowed production and supply chain freezes caused by the pandemic seem to be easing as we approach what we hope is the end of a near two-year lockdown. The alcohol industry is ready to welcome back bar-goers, sofa-sippers, and backyard heroes alike.

The Vice Fund (symbol: VICEX) invests in industries whose focus, in the Adviser’s assessment, may be morally questioned by members of the general public or face funding or regulatory challenges because of social disapproval. Investors looking for companies that historically generate strong profits and pay dividends should consider taking a closer look at the major alcohol stocks. These are companies that manufacture and distribute a variety of alcoholic beverages, including beer, wine, and liquor. These stocks have generally underperformed growth stocks in the last 10 years.​


The Vice Fund (symbol: VICEX) is available on many self-directed platforms, including Schwab, Fidelity, and Pershing. You may purchase shares through brokers, financial advisors, or other financial intermediaries that distribute the funds.
