I am working on a story about stocks and investments that are decidedly unsexy or geeky, but have yielded sexy returns over time. One example is Dominos Pizza (DPZ). Dominos hasn’t been cool since the days of the Brat Pack, but its stock has soared 6000 percent since 2008. The managing editor for the Bank Administration Institute (BAI), Lou Carlozo is an investment contributor to U.S. News & World Report, based in Chicago. As a courtesy, please do not request phone interviews or repeated updates on the story’s status; U.S. News investment stories with my byline usually run on Tuesdays. Thanks. We’re asking you to provide, *via email*, examples of stocks from companies (or other investments) that aren’t nearly as sexy as Amazon or Tesla, but have astounded with their returns. You may list several stocks in bullet points with a one to two paragraph explanation for each one. Provide some background on the stock and give insight into its phenomenal rise. Longer answers are better than shorter ones. Answers are requested by Thursday April 6, 2017 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. To make sure I see your reply in my inbox, please put *unsexy investments*, *sexy returns* in all caps in the subject line.
