Turner Investments says the rally is junk
Morningstar has a nice synopsis of Turner Investments' shareholder letter saying that the lowest quality stocks are rallying the most. Turner is a quant shop. They believe that this rally is a "statistical anomaly". It seems that the stocks rallying the most are junk stocks under $1. Turner's full piece is available on their website.
I quite agree. The high quality stocks have also rallied off their bottoms, but they are still cheap. I recommend looking at large cap stocks with wide moats, like JNJ, Procter and Gamble, Novartis, Lowes, Kinder Morgan, Caterpillar, Berkshire Hathaway, Pepsi, Sysco, Cisco, Intel, 3M and Microsoft. All these firms except Berkshire pay reasonably generous and growing dividends. They are available at relatively high yields.
American Express is definitely a bluechip firm that's been unreasonably punished. I still think it's a buy. It's available at a relatively high yield now, although it's been reluctant to increase its dividend.
I have a number of more aggressive picks that I also feel have wide economic moats. These include Compass Minerals, Enterprise GP Holdings, Paychex, Vulcan Materials, IMS Health, Western Union, Monsanto and Apollo Group. The first 5 pay dividends. Paychex pays quite a large dividend. EPE pays a very large one and I expect that to grow quite rapidly.
