New construction seems to be everywhere in the U.S.

Management consultant FMI Corporation forecasts $1.9 trillion in new construction in the U.S. by 2025.

New homes and office buildings all need electrical wiring to ensure reliable power.

The chart above shows new construction spending in the U.S.

By 2025, spending will increase 35.7% from 2020.

All of this new construction will need stable electrical wiring for power.

Today’s Power Stock supplies industrial wire, cables and connectors around the world: Encore Wire Corp. (Nasdaq: WIRE).

Texas-based Encore Wire stock scores a “Strong Bullish” perfect 100 on our Stock Power Ratings system, and we expect it to beat the broader market by 3X in the next 12 months.
