- Analyzed the past "watchlist recommendations".
- Asked my Twitter followers to give me their 3 top candidates.
- BMW, AbbVie, Philip Morris and Illinois Tool Works look like the best value for me.

Watchlist August 2018
I reached out to my followers on Twitter and asked the following:
Writing my monthly watchlist right now and interested in knowing what stocks YOU are watching right now. Name your top 3 candidates and I might even include them (with credit to you ofc) if I agree
#dividends #dividend #ValueInvesting
I took some of the stocks which I could find in the Borsdata universe that my followers suggested and did some fast research by creating 4 different lists focusing on Valuation, Debt, Growth and Free Cash Flow + TA.
Free Cash Flow and TA
Takeaway so far
From the list above, I find Vitrolife (OTC:VITIF), Veidekke, Starbucks, Pareto Bank, Ocean Yield (OTCQX:OYIEF), Nolato (OTC:NLTBF), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Maersk (OTCPK:AMKAF) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) the most interesting.
Credit to Lundaluppen, Gottodix, and Eric Landis. A lot of great suggestions by everyone though!
Further research needs to be done, but interesting to see what people are looking at.
Some of you recommended Investor
During July, I bought shares in Investor and Kinnevik (OTCPK:KINNF) for 50,000 NOK. I like to buy Investor when the discount is close to 28% to NAV.
I don't that's the case, and BMW, along with its intangible assets and great history, should do fine, IMO.
Illinois Tool Works
Illinois Tool Works (NYSE:ITW) just increased its dividend by 28%, showing great faith in the future. The price area of $144-145 is interesting.
A great stock in many ways which fits my portfolio perfectly. I would want to add ASAP, because I think the stock will only rise from now.
Everybody knows AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV), so no need to talk more about it. Just look at the data and the TA. I think it's time to pick up this great, great company.
