30 Stocks For A Three-Year Sideways Market?


Today SA News Editor Carl Surran's article was titled "Morgan Stanley selects 30 stocks for a three-year sideways market."

"Morgan Stanley Chief U.S. Equity Strategist Michael Wilson expects to see "a choppy, range trading index for years"

"and the firm selects 30 stocks it believes will offer the best ways to play a sideways market over the next three years."

Although I never sell any shares of stock unless I am forced to sell by a cash buyout, I found Morgan Stanley's list of 30 stocks to be extremely interesting.

In fact, I liked some of the stocks quite a bit.  I have listed the stocks from the lowest expected 5 year PEG ratio to the highest expected 5 year PEG ratio.

I prefer to buy stocks with lower 5 year expected PEG ratios.  I avoid buying stocks if the 5 year expected PEG ratio is higher than 2.00.
