Our primary purpose is to assist subscribers in growing their capital and income base to generate cash for their current and future needs, explains Kelley Wright, editor of Investment Quality Trends.

To that end we believe that shares of high quality stocks purchased at a historically repetitive area of low-price/high-yield offers the greater potential for downside protection and upside appreciation.

The Timely Ten, therefore, is not just another ‘best of, right now’ list.  Rather, it is our reasoned expectation — based on our methodology and experience — that these ten currently Undervalued stocks offer the greatest real total-return potential over the next five years.

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

The Timely Ten is comprised of stocks from the Undervalued category that generally have an S&P Dividend & Earnings Quality ranking of A- or better and a rating for exemplary long-term dividend growth.

These stocks also have a P/E ratio of 15 or less, a payout ratio of 50% or less, and technical characteristics that suggest the potential for imminent capital appreciation. Our latest Timely Ten selections are:

Target (TGT) — yielding 3.09%
American Express (AXP) — yielding 1.73%
CVS Health (CVS) -- yielding 2.12%
Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) — yielding 2.79%
Philip Morris Int'l (PM) — yielding 4.52%
Gap Inc. (GPS) — yielding 3.61%
Franklin Resources (BEN) — yielding 1.80%
T. Rowe Price (TROW) — yielding 2.83%
Omnicom Group (OMC) — yielding 2.49%
TJX Companies (TJX)—yielding 1.33%

Do we believe that all ten will appreciate simultaneously or immediately? Of course not.

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