High IQ: 10 Blue Chip Buys

 April 18, 2012 12:05 PM
 


by Kelley Wright, editor IQ Trends

Our current Timely Ten list is our reasoned expectation based on our methodology and experience for what stocks we believe will perform best over the next five years.

We believe that high-quality stocks purchased at historically low-price-to-high-yield offers the best potential for downside protection and upside appreciation.

They consist of undervalued stocks that generally have a S&P Dividend & Earnings Quality rating of A- or better, and have a history of exemplary long-term dividend growth.

These stocks also have a P/E ratio of 15 or less, a payout ratio of 50% or less (75% for Utilities), debt of 50% or less (75% for Utilities), and technical characteristics that suggests the potential for imminent capital appreciation.

Do we believe that all 10 will go up simultaneously or immediately? Of course not.

Our four-plus decades of research and experience, however, leads us to believe that these stocks, purchased at historically undervalued levels, are well positioned for both growth of capital and income.

Whether you are looking to build a portfolio from scratch, are partially invested and looking to add new positions, or fully invested and in need of some affirmation and hand holding, The Timely Ten represents our top ten current recommendations.

Our latest Timely Ten selections -- along with their recent divdend yields -- are:

Chevron (CVX) - yielding 3.2%
Eaton Corp. (ETN) -- yielding 3.2%
Coca Cola (KO) -- yielding 2.8%
Occidental Petroleum (OXY) -- yielding 2.4%
Union Pacific (UNP) -- yielding 2.2%
ConocoPhillips (COP) -- yielding 3.5%
United Technologies (UTX) -- yielding 2.4%
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) -- yielding 3.6%
CVS Caremark (CVS) -- yielding 1.5%
Harris Corp. (HRS) -- yielding 3.0%
