Top Picks - Part 2
01/09/2004 12:00 am EST
In this issue of The Money Show Digest, we continue our Annual Top Picks Report, in which we have asked all contributing advisors to select their single favorite stock for 2004. (To return to Part I of this special report, click here.) Meanwhile, here is Part 2 of the Top Picks report, and a look ahead.
With the final year-end numbers in, the 25 stocks in last year's Top Picks reports showed a 68% gain, with only one of those stocks down in price. Vahan Janjigian's pick of American Superconductor rose 360%, while Fred Hager selection of Rambus scored a gain of 357%. We began Part 1 of this report with Vahan's new pick, and we conclude Part 2, with a new pick from Fred.
We offer our congratulations to the advisors who have been featured in these pages. At the risk of sounding self-serving, they have shown an uncanny record of keeping our readers on the right track. At the time of our 2003 Top Picks report, our advisors cited such factors as the impact of changes in tax rates and the election cycle to support a continued bullish stance. The general consensus among our advisors has since remained bullish as prices have risen through the year. They have alerted our readers to such trends as gold, natural resources, and commodities, growing opportunities in Asia, particularly China, and the sharp rebound in tech stocks- all well before these trends became popular in the financial media.
