Tuesday's Stocks To Watch

|Includes: JCI, Linear Technology Corporation (LLTC), NSC, SU, TEVA

The proposed budget talks on Capitol Hill are dominating the news headlines, but in the pits, where stock price matters, a handful of stocks are being watched closely. Quite often investors become distracted by a headlines offered by the media, and when the Government is involved some investors actually get frozen in their tracks, but this time the talk on capitol hill is actually something main street seems to embrace.

Main Street wants the government to get out of the way, and reasonably so does corporate America, but if the Government does get out of the way will that also opened the door for tapering? More importantly, if it does open the door for tapering well it also allow a tapering schedule that is almost surely to be associated with the first round of tapering to be more aggressive than it otherwise would?
