Focus on Emerging Markets; Nathan Lewis of Jackson Securities Believes Minority-Owned Firms Can Show the Way to Profits. (Private Screening)


Scott, Matthew S., Black Enterprise


Nathan L. Lewis, head of the Equity Research Group at Jackson Securities Inc. (JSI) in Atlanta, says following trends in the minority community can make you rich. JSI's equity research group focuses on publicly traded companies that actively pursue the minority marketplace, are minority-owned, or are southeast-based large- and mid-cap companies. "We look at each company and try to understand the variables that drive its business," says Lewis. "Our goals are to provide superior research and to understand the minority market and southeast region better than anyone else."

Lewis also reasons that focusing on companies owned and managed by minorities can be profitable "because those companies will target minority investors and consumers; and since minority consumers are the fastest growing in the United States, firms that serve them should outperform their peers." Emphasizing the strengths of minority markets and the companies that serve them, Lewis' Private Screening selections this month are as follows:

Lewis expects the stock to move from $16.98 to $22 over the next 18 months.

Another minority-owned company Lewis likes is Univision Communications Inc. (NYSE: UVN), a major supplier of Spanish-language programming. Over the past five years, it has aired more than 90% of the 20 most widely watched programs among Hispanic households. He expects the stock to perform well over the long-term because of the demographic trends in the Hispanic market. …
