See my 4 stocks to buy in 2011.
Boom!! Another year and another double-digit gain for my 4 stocks to buy in 2010. The collection of stocks finished up a healthy 27%. In a year when the Dow saw 10% gains, S&P 500 was up 12%, and the Nasdaq locked in 18%.
Best of all, I finished first among the other participating bloggers (ranking at the bottom of this post). Not bad, right? Below is a breakdown of how each individual stock did during 2010:
|Ticker||Initial Price ($)||Price End 12/31/10 ($)||YTD Change (%)|
All data is taken as of market close on December 31, 2010. Total calculated by taking average of all 4 returns.
Obviously, my worst performer, Bank of America (BAC), dragged the overall percentage down. I am extremely happen with how the other 3 made out in 2010, and I actually see Vale (VALE), Caterpillar (CAT), and Schlumberger (SLB) all having another big year in 2011.
Below are returns from other bloggers participating in this event:
|Rank||Site||YTD Return (%)|
