The first quarter is over and now it is time to see how my 4 stocks to buy in 2012 are doing. The market has been on a tear for pretty much most part of 2012, so it is no surprise that my stocks did pretty good. You can see the results below:
|Ticker||Initial Price ($)||Price End 3/30/12 ($)||YTD Change (%)|
Haliburton (HAL) has been fluctuating up and down for most of the year, but that is fine. Look for the big returns here come end of summer.
Ford (F) has been consolidating over the last couple of months. Watch closely as the stock should be ready to move to the next trading level soon.
After a great start to the year, Alcoa (AA) has experienced a minor pullback. Look for support around the $9.50 level.
Caterpillar (CAT) has been pretty steady for 2012. Look for that trend to continue in the coming months.
