My 52 Week High’s – In a Down Market

Growth

Choosing individual stocks that you can “buy and hold” for growth is always a challenge. You need to have a great reason to choose each stock for your portfolio, and then make sure the story doesn’t change.

Even in a flat or slightly down market you can still have great stocks making 52 – week highs. 14 of my 66 stocks hit new 52 week or all-time highs this week, and the market was quite weak.

Altria (MO) – Very long time holding, 4% at costs bond like yield

AMN HEALTHCARE SERVICES (AHS) – My favorite stock last 2 years, all-time high

Amazon (AMZN) – Bought in February 40% gain, all-time high

Constellation Brands (STZ) – My favorite stock last 2 years, all-time high

Facebook (FB) – Bought at $70, now $119 in 2 years, all-time high

Home Depot (HD) – Very long time holding, all-time high

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) – Very long time holding, nice dividend, all-time high

Lockheed Martin (LMT) – Very long time holding, all-time high

Martin Marietta (MLM) – Bought March 2016, all-time high

McDonalds (MCD) – Bought in December, all-time high

3M (MMM) – Very long time holding, all-time high

Nvida Corp (NVDA) – Bought at $20 in 2014 now $40, all-time high

Nuveen Preferred (JPC) – 8% yield CEF bond like yield

Raytheon (RTN) – Long time holding, all-time high

Just so that you don’t think that all of my stocks are 52 – week winners I had 4 core holdings that hit 52 – week lows this week:

American Airlines – Still up over 30% since purchased, I’ll keep for awhile

Apple – Core holding forever

Gilead Sciences – Core holding, but I’m down about 10%, has lots of cash

Under Armour – Core holding, still up 18%, should rebound big in 12 months
