  • 3 Stocks that have it all 1 comment
    Jan 29, 2011 12:00 PM | about stocks: FDS, CRR, PLCM
     I was listening to a song by Queen and the lyrics of  "I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now" struck a cord for this post.  I decided to find three stocks that have it all and they have it now.  And what might that be you may ask?

    What I want is:

    • A stock that has Wall Street brokerage analysts publishing buy recommendations based on double digit sales and earnings growth projections
    • A stock that has a wide, popular and positive investor following
    • And the I want it NOW component recent and consistent price appreciation
    Let's look at 3 stocks that fit that criteria:
     
    FDS -- Facset Research -- supplies global economic and financial data to analysts, investment bankers and other financial professionals. The company combines databases from multiple suppliers into a single online source of information and analytics, including fundamental data on tens of thousands of American and international companies and securities. The company obtains financial information from several database vendors and when possible, seeks to maintain contractual relationships with a minimum of two database providers for each type of financial data. are on a flat or royalty basis.
