Tech and Pharma Stocks are Most Attractive for January

January’s Most Attractive Stocks are now avail­able.

Technology and Pharmaceutical stocks predominate compared to other sectors. One newcomer to the list, Seagate Technology (STX), is actually an old friend. STX made our subscribers a lot of money when the stock jumped on acquisition speculation last fall. After that jump, the stock was too expensive to remain on the list and it dropped off the list and down in price for a few months before returning this month. We continue to like Microsoft (MSFT), which performed very well while on our list. On the small cap side, we like Emerson Radio (MSN) and Cubic Corporation (CUB).

All of these stocks get our “very attrac­tive” rat­ing, which means they have high qual­ity eco­nomic earn­ings and their val­u­a­tions are cheap. For exam­ple, the cur­rent stock prices of STX and MSN imply those com­pa­nies prof­its will decline per­ma­nently by 70% or more. The low expec­ta­tions in the stock prices of these stocks pro­vide investors attrac­tive down­side pro­tec­tion and upside potential.

Note that we offer free com­pany val­u­a­tion reports for 4 of the com­pa­nies included in our Most Attrac­tive Stocks newsletters.

Here is a quick overview for the January reports.
