Blue-chip bargains: When growth plays become value buys

September 08, 2005 | About:

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool value investor, scouring the investing universe for the proverbial 50-cent dollars.



Such cheap stocks are rarely found in plain sight, which means I've historically made my money on obscure little companies such as Huttig Building Products, AAON, Deb Shops and Denny's.

But my portfolio today looks vastly different than it ever has: it's full of large-cap, blue-chip stocks such as Microsoft, Wal-Mart, McDonald's, Costco, Berkshire Hathaway and Anheuser-Busch. These have traditionally been considered growth stocks, but today are trading at levels that are appealing to value guys like me.
