Ten Ultimate Stock-Pickers' Stocks to Consider in 2010
A walk through the securities highlighted during 2009 yields ten 5-star stocks.
By Greggory Warren, CFA | Senior Stock Analyst
With just 10 days left in 2009, we figured it would be a good time to look back through some of the key lessons we've learned since we relaunched Ultimate Stock-Pickers, and take the opportunity to pass along 10 names we've highlighted in our articles this year that are still worth considering as we move into 2010.
As you may recall, our primary objective with Ultimate Stock-Pickers has been to cross-check Morningstar's own stock research against the opinions of professional money managers (which we garner through the holdings, purchases, sales, and commentary derived from their investment portfolios) and come away with investable ideas to highlight for investors. Instead of presenting these stocks ideas in the form of a portfolio, we've focused the majority of our efforts on securities that managers are actively buying and selling, producing a quarterly listing of top 10 purchases and sales, as well as articles highlighting conviction buy ideas (and holdings), which we define as purchases (and holdings) that represent a larger than average position size for a portfolio, and new money purchases and outright sales by our top managers.
