Stock Picks, 8-13

|Includes:Atwood Oceanics Inc. (ATW), BIDU, PFG, SFG

 I ran extensive stock screens today and generated four final companies. For growth screens Atwood Oceanics [ATW] and Baidu [BIDU], and for value screens Principal Financial Group [PFG] and Stancorp Financial Group [SFG]. Atwood Oceanics look like a powerful growing company trading at a great price. I plan to wait for the monthly stochastic to bottom to buy it. Baidu is a very pricey Chinese growth stock that I don't want to pay a premium for [which I would have to]. PFG & SFG both are falling to cheap prices, but haven't reached them yet. I'm wiling to wait in the mean time.
