5 Picks for 2013
For 2012, I picked five stocks that I felt offered good risk reward profiles. They were V, STX, WPRT, BDX, and SODA. All were up for the year except WPRT, and their combined return beat out the S&P 500 by a few percentage points.
So this year I am back to the drawing board and have come up with 5 new stocks. I put $800 in each. I am looking to duplicate the solid returns of 2012, or alternatively, not lose as much as the S&P 500.
This years picks are COH, COP, NLS, SIRI, and WU.
I plan on picking 5 stocks a year and hold anything I feel still has value for longer. Unfortunately, I feel that V and SODA have gotten ahead of themselves and STX and BDX, while still offering fair value, do not offer the same type of value COP or COH do right now.
I'd be happy to get some feedback from fellow fools on these selections.
