I personally love companies with strong growth and low debt ratios. In my blog I've also often published hundreds of stock ideas, and some of them performed very well.

I've focused my thoughts on stocks with a yield over 2 percent, but you must consider the full amount of cash which the company owns. The higher the cash per share, the better the premium you can pay but in the end, it's the operational business that drives the stock up or down.
Only a good growing company with better developing business perspectives can lift up your asset. I know that it is hard to look into the future, and nobody has the ability to do this, but with a small piece of unclouded thoughts, your investment should become a clear target or trash.
