The 3 Best Performing Stocks in Dow Over The Past 10 Years

At the end of every trading session on Wall Street, average investors, like you and I hear the performance of the Dow Jones, S&P 500, and Nasdaq. These are the common 3 indexes and exchanges used to show how the market is doing. I want to focus on one and more particularly the top 3 performing stocks in it. As I write this the Dow Jones sits above 23,000 and about 9 months ago it broke 20,000. (Side note, when…

General Motors Is the Comeback Story of This Century

Most of you have seen by now that the long form content is the way that I am going to go. It allows me to go more in-depth with thoughts and cover all ground. The same thing goes for my stock picks. I am a big advocate for doing your research when determining whether a company is worth your investment. Going to long-form content will give me a better understanding of a company that I want to recommend to you….

Coke Vs Pepsi The Battle Of Soda

Coke Vs Pepsi The Battle Of Soda

Coke (KO) vs Pepsi (PEP). Both bullet proof picks if you ask me. It has been the battle of the heavyweights forever. I know people that swear by coke, my Dad for example would rather not have a drink if he was given the option Pepsi or nothing. He is a die hard diet coke drinker. Other people, on the other hand, wont touch the stuff that is also put on Nascar tires to help them stick to the ground….

How Could You Not Like John Deere?

How Could You Not Like John Deere?

When you think of John Deere (DE), are tractors the only thing that comes to mind? I know that before I analyzed this company I had a general understanding of how they did business.

John Deere is broken down into 4 operating segments; Agricultural equipment, commercial and consumer equipment, construction and forestry, and the credit segment. All of these put together and you have the brand…

Disney is a Media Powerhouse

Disney is a Media Powerhouse

I have been going to Disney (DIS) since I was 7. Over the course of my lifetime, I have been 7 times. That is more than your average American family.

Is Ford’s Dividend Sustainable?

Is Ford’s Dividend Sustainable?

I will be the first to admit that at a stock posting a dividend yield of over 5% is eye catching. Usually, there is a catch with companies boasting such a high yield. There is a reason why right? Of course, over the past 3 years the number 2 automaker in the United States, Ford (F), has been beaten down. There is no beating around the bush with that. Ford currently holds a dividend yield of 5.1%. Which will have…

Bullet Proof Pick: Visa

Bullet Proof Pick: Visa

Do me a favor and pull out your wallet. Take a look inside. I am willing to bet that most of you have more plastic in that wallet than paper. A Visa card is probably one of those pieces of plastic. I am guilty of this too, rarely do I carry cash.

Bulletproof Pick: Johnson and Johnson

Bulletproof Pick: Johnson and Johnson

To give you an idea, every two weeks I am going to pick a stock that I personally think would be smart to invest in. It will alternate between good smart investments and some growth picks.
