Charlotte Named #2 in Nation for Best Publicly Traded Stocks

Charlotte welcomed CNBC this week to declare the city the nation’s second-best for publicly traded stocks.

Relocating to Charlotte?  We think you’ll love this city as we always seem to be atop the ‘good’ list for cities across the nation for growth, economics, jobs and lifestyle.

Tweeting as he toured Charlotte, Brian Sullivan created quite the frenzy about town!   His CNBC “Street Signs” broadcast was from the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Sullivan mentioned that Charlotte was a “once sleepy” town that has become known as “Wall Street South.”  Of course I loved hearing this great news as well as the fact that he feels that one of the most spectacular skylines in the South.

David Roberts, Carlisle CEO, discussed closing factories in China and opening them in the U.S.  Small business owners also got a plug from the popular CNBC anchor.  Charlotte financial adviser Larry Carroll discussed the nations fiscal cliff local NASCAR president, Marcus Smith discussed is business’s impact on the local economy.

Below is an interview with Charlotte Chamber of Commerce CEO Bob Morgan as he chatted with Sullivan at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

  1. Bank of America has had a great year, despite the fact that we tell our clients to go somewhere else. Sonic automotive is a well run company and the automobile sales in the unit states were solid this year. Lowes will continue to benefit from the increased housing starts and in general companies based out of Charlotte have the advantage of a less restrictive government and lower taxes than the companies based out of the north or far west. I think the trend will continue.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
