Al Root's "5 Smart Plays on the Robotics Revolution" makes the case that it's time to invest in ABB Ltd (NYSE: ABB) and other robot makers, as new technologies are making automation more versatile and accessible.
Loews Corporation (NYSE: L) is a value-focused, family-controlled company that has underappreciated assets with decent growth prospects, according to "Loews: A Conglomerate That Investors Can Love" by Andrew Bary.
