Best Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now


Investors have a lot to choose from when picking stocks to buy. But many are honing in on a handful of larger than life blue chips.

The 10 biggest companies in the S&P 500 index are collectively worth $4.36 trillion. The entire S&P 500 recently topped $20 trillion in value for the first time.

So the top 10 companies, a mere 2% of the 500 stocks in the index, make up almost 25% of the S&P 500’s total market value.

That is astonishing.

The rise in popularity of index ETFs that track the S&P 500 is one of the reasons why these 10 stocks are so widely held. When you buy the SPY (SPY), for example, you get exposure to all 500 companies in the index, which is weighted by market value.

But the outsized importance of the biggest 10 companies is also a reflection of how many investors like to follow the old motto of former Fidelity markets guru Peter Lynch: Buy what you know.

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) are both aerospace companies, but which is the better investment? We will compare the two businesses based on the strength of their earnings, analyst recommendations, dividends, valuation, institutional ownership, profitability and risk.

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “FLIR Systems gross margins remain vulnerable to a host of factors, including product mix changes and manufacturing cost absorption. Also, high manufacturing cost absorption is likely to restrict the company’s growth. Moreover, factors like imposition of governmental controls and restrictions on export of technology remain concerns. Poor economic conditions across FLIR Systems’ key operating regions may hamper capital investment and consumer spending, thereby weighing on the company’s profitability. Moreover, the company’s lead time for licensing the orders have increased, resulting in a lengthy order acceptance period, which is likely to hurt the top line. However, it enjoys a strong top-line growth, driven by impressive performance across most of its segments. In the past six months, FLIR Systems’ shares have outperformed compared with the industry average.”
