These 20 stocks will do well no matter what, UBS says: SUN, KMI, NUE, MWV, MAS, IRM, WYNN, LEG, RAI, MO, BMY, JNJ, CINF, PBCT, SAI, PAYX, FTR, WIN, PGN, POM. These stocks boast strong dividend payouts, and "tend to provide the most consistent alpha without the need for more tactical management."

    I just got 330 more shares of FTR...it would have been nice to have gotten it @ $3.31, where it was the other day, but that's OK - that's the price you pay when you need to see some article to remind you to manage your portfolio! ;-) I was actually a little apprehensive, being how this market's been; so, in this case, I needed the kick in the ass.....

    Hello Zlot

     

    I also have added additional shares of FTR, 3 times total. My last purchase was 580 shares that gives me 1,000 shares total for an average of $3.94 per share. This month I will receive $100.00 in dividends or roughly 28 shares. This stock is not a short for me but hopefully not a long stock to hold either, maybe 2 to 3 years. In 2 to 3 years I should amass quite a few more shares and when the price per share rebounds we should make a nice return. Good luck I think we will be ok buying at the dips.

    Hey! We're just about in the same boat - I just checked my cost basis @ 3.92. The truth of the matter is that we just never know - I got a bunch of HGT on the way down and it tanked at yet another -30someodd%! My conclusion is that no matter how ya look at it, when you deal with securities, you're giving someone a license to steal your money! And even at that, it's probably better than the alternative. I just literally thank God I've more-or-less made up for my losses from the dotcom bust.

    The list has both tobacco stocks, and stocks of the companies that make the cancer drugs that the tobacco users will eventually need.
    Guess they've got it covered!
    Maybe they should add some soft drink companies like KO and PEP and pair them with companies that make medicines for the diabetes that many drinkers of soft drinks will develop, like NVO. Just to round things out.

     

    Long NVO

    I bought 2777 shares FTR in Nov.'11 @ $5.40. I've got a long way to go to get even, but it's nice to read some positive reports on this stock. I'm "on the cusp" about buying more at this point, because of the "hit" I've taken in the past seven months.

    Need some help with Exelon Energy. High pay out. Do you think they will continue? Would you buy ARLP?
