Top 5 Stocks For 2013

[ January 29, 2013 | Author: Admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

After a year that was accentuated — or shall I say pockmarked — by a continual flow of exogenous events such as natural disasters, sovereign debt and budgetary crises and political changes in the Arab world, resulting in a flat S&P 500 index, we head into a fresh new year with a clean slate. 2012 will bring with it a whole new set of economic data points, political dynamics and earnings reports.

In this article, I want to focus on a portfolio of stock picks from the S&P 500. Rather than picking a Top 10 for the entire index, I want to pick a top stock from each of the 10 S&P 500 sectors. This will provide sector diversity while still allowing me to cherry pick the best for 2012.
