I love this time of year! Family gatherings, Christmas music, holiday plays, decorations and stock picks. Stock picks? Yes, 'tis the season for stock predictions! Virtually every financial writer will pen an article selecting his or her top stock picks for the upcoming year.
I enjoy reading them and the logic behind the picks. As a long-term buy-and-hold investor, generally most aren't useful for me; nevertheless, I find them entertaining and sometimes there is a gem to be found. Here are some picks for 2013...
In a Forbes article top securities analysts share their top picks for 2013:
Quote:The Motley Fool's Dan Caplinger sees a tale of two recoveries in 2013. Some of the companies expected to see earnings rebound next year are those that have had the most trouble bouncing back from the recession and the Panic of 2008, and because of that laggard performance, the success they're finding now is amplified on a percentage basis as earnings start to rise more substantially. But other companies on the list hit the ground running as soon as the recession ended and have seen their growth accelerate over time. He thinks these Dow Stocks are primed for 2013:
Quote:John Buckingham, portfolio manager for the Al Frank Fund (VALUX) in a The Street article believes stocks have performed exceptionally well this year in the face of overwhelmingly negative sentiment, and that's a positive sign for the markets heading into 2013. Here are a few of his picks:
Quote:Finally, Value Stocks Guide listed 62 dividend stocks for 2013. In an effort to build a well-diversified income portfolio, they pick the top dividend paying stocks in their respective industries as defined by valuation, yield, dividend growth and dividend coverage (ability to pay the dividend without dipping into vital working capital). Here are the 10 highest yielding stocks on their list (click the link above for the full list):
As always, be sure to do your own due diligence and determine if any of these stocks fit in your portfolio before buying. Today's choices just may help determine how well you live in retirement.
Full Disclosure: No position in the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth holdings here.
