Barron's is out with its list of the 500 financially strongest companies as ranked after a rigorous cash and sales analysis. A quick filter on the list shows a good chunk of the names trade with a single-digit price to earnings ratio including Goodyear Tire & Rubber (GT). Despite all the buzz about booming auto sales in the U.S. and China, concerns about growth for Goodyear's products in other regions of the globe have lowered expectations. But with auto sale estimates for full-year being taken higher, Goodyear could see enough consistent revenue growth to justify a higher trading multiple. (Top 25: AAPL, WCC, WDC, DVA, CHRW, QCOM, JOY, V, STX, MRC, MA, CVI, COF, SYMC, MCK, WCG, ETN, BRCM, TMO, CI, CBI, NOV, WNR, HFC, DK)

    I will not be surprised to find this list on the bottom of Tweety's cage in a few months. Many named in the Top 25 have already begun to cave.

    It allows four times the negative comments about Apple coming is as the strongest company in America, financially speaking.

    The top 25 list is somewhat telling: mobile computing system design houses, hard disk manufacturers, refiners, certain industrials (tooling, supplies, supply chain), select healthcare...note the HD vendors have a perpetual windfall from the engineered obsolescence.

    When you are on top of Barron's list and at the bottom of the S&P performing stocks, that means buy. I said it at 395, I will say it again at $450, smart money at a market peak will be rotating into single digit P/E, dividend paying stocks with growth. $AAPL is a prime suspect.

    Agree. (AAPL), (STX), and (WDC) look good buys.
