The accompanying table (click to enlarge) presents my 60 defensive growth stock picks at the recently launched online investing site Inner8.com, which I wrote about.
 
My picks are focused on healthcare and consumer staples, along with some cash rich tech companies such as Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). My picks include companies across the entire spectrum of market cap and risk in the biotech industry, ranging from top performers such as Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) to small and micro-cap picks such as Discovery Labs (NASDAQ:DSCO), Cypress Bio (CYPB), and Javelin Pharma (JAV).
 
Other defensive, large-cap picks include Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM), Abbott Labs (NYSE:ABT), and Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT).
