Stock Picking?

October 22, 2010

10/22/2010

I was told Yahoo is good because of possibility it might be acquired. I tend to disagree even though I’m yahoo user and have been for long time.

Here is what I like and own:

Citibank – C, never know how this puppy will take off in a year and start paying dividands again

General Electric – GE, got to love this with nice yield also

Starbucks – SBUX with about 1% yield

Verizon ( I own) or ATT – VZ or T, talk about 6% yield, can’t find that any saving                                                               accounts

Want to diversify more how about some Phrama Stocks, Merck (MER), Eli Lilly (LLY) or Pfizer (PFE) all paying 4% + in yield.

Love to hear other inputs? Don’t be shy

Let us visit what happened to the above stocks since I posted this back in 10/22/2010

Let us say you invested $100 with each company equally for a total of $700 your return in up to 4/23/2012 would have been 30% 🙂 not too bad I say 🙂
