Looking for Safety? Try Mega-Caps, Not Bonds

While investors have piling into Treasury bonds and gold in a quest for safety, they’ve been avoiding some of the market’s biggest, steadiest stocks. And that’s created some big bargains among the big guys, Validea CEO John Reese says. 

“A dichotomy has emerged: It seems that many investors have been running away from stocks, looking for supposedly safer investments, while those who have been buying stocks have been leaning fairly strongly toward more aggressive shares,” Reese writes for MSN’s Top Stocks blog. “That’s created a number of bargains among some of the market’s biggest, steadiest companies.”

Reese looks at five mega-cap stocks that get approval from one or more of his “Guru Strategies”, each of which is based on the approach of a different investing great. Among the picks: Apple, Inc., which gets a perfect 100% score from Reese’s Martin Zweig-inspired approach. To read the full article and see all the picks, click here.
