Monday’s “Buy List” — week of January 6, 2014

(Note: This article was reserved for Goodfellow LLC subscribers until January 28, 2017, when I made it available to the general public.)


Here are five stocks which I would buy today, based on strong fundamentals and chart patterns, along with links to my recent comments on the companies.

While I am not a stock trader, in the sense of buying/selling in the span of several hours, days, or even weeks, I do always choose my stock purchases based on the belief that the chart is telling me that the stock will rise relatively immediately.

Harman Industries (HAR)

Home Depot (HD) 

Leggett & Platt (LEG)

Sotheby’s (BID)

Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX)


I currently own shares in Leggett & Platt.  I would absolutely buy any of these others today, if I were not already fully invested, and if I were not overweighted in these particular industries.

I think that housing-related stocks are important to own right now, and would therefore make my first selection from either Home Depot or Leggett & Platt, if my portfolio were lacking in that industry.

Leggett & Platt has a current yield of 3.91%, by far the highest dividend yield of these five choices.

I don’t generally keep cash in my portfolio.  Rather, I use stop-loss orders on most of my positions.  If one stock gets stopped out, I reinvest the money.  If several stocks get stopped out, I wait for the market to stop falling, and then I buy low.  During the “buy low” process, I buy stocks which either fell to the bottom of stable trading ranges, or stocks which did not suffer with the market downturn.  At no point do I ever buy stocks which have recently fallen through support levels.
