8 Winter Weather Stocks that Heat Up When it Gets Cold

We're (almost) snowed in at Kapitall, which got us wondering what a Snow Index would look like. 

Make no doubt about it. It's winter. Public school students throughout the East and Midwest enjoyed an early weekend courtesy of Jack Frost – and mayors broke out the snow shovels for that winter photo-op. And while this storm may not have been as catastrophic as some people predicted, it is time to brace ourselves for two, maybe three months of cold, wind, and snow.

With that in mind we decided to build a list of winter weather stocks that profit when the snow gets bad. Now, for a lot of reasons this wasn't particularly easy to do. For one, the world's largest maker of snow plows, Meyer, is a privately held company. No matter, we trudged on.

Thinking outside of the box, it wasn't too hard to come up with some stocks who might see a spike during a particularly rough winter. For instance, if you think the slopes are going to be particularly inviting this year, there's a publicly traded ski-resort, Vail (MTN). If you're looking for something a little less seasonal, you could check out Compass Minerals (CMP) – the raw materials supplier which provides much of the country's rock salt. 

If you're looking for something a little less seasonal, there's always Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). When people get sick they need more pain killers and moisturizer – but the largest pharmaceutical company in America also has some leverage in the other seasons as well. And generators are useful year-round, although manufacturers like Generac (GNRC) could see a spike when the weather gets particularly bad. 

And, finally, for the winter-or-bust crowd, there are a number of publicly traded companies that sell winter-specific recreational goods. These range from the practical and reliable: like winter coats from Columbia Sportswear (COLM), to the more high end, like Arctic Cat Inc. (ACAT), which makes snowmobiles.
