Where to Invest in 2013

Where to Invest in 2013? Now that we’re in the New Year of 2013 I would like to give my thoughts on some of the different sectors and stocks I think will be profitable this year. I don't really like to give out investing advice so I will put in this disclaimer and say by investing in these stocks you could possibly suffer financial losses. Having said that, I have done a lot of research on these companies, looked at their annual results, trends, listened to some of the stockholder meetings, etc. Additionally, I have a positive record when it comes to picking winners. I've held AAPL long term since it was back in the $150 range. I’ve had a lot of people ask me so here are some of my picks. The last few years have been a roller coaster ride to say the least, but a fun one. So let me start out with some of my picks:

Where to Invest in 2013

CONSUMER DISCRETIONARY

Gap (NYSE:GPS)

This stock has done very, very well in 2012 and they’re doing everything like champs right now. I can remember when the stock was valued at less than $20 and investors thought of it more as a dividend play on retail. This retail giant owns Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic which are all well known retail clothing stores. Strong consumer demand coupled with savvy management has made this stock a very strong play.

TECHNOLOGY

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)

Come on, look no further than the King of technology. Apple has always been undervalued, and it still is. The only reason the stock has dropped off of it’s $700+ highs is because of all of the profit taking, it has climbed considerably within the past year. Here is what Apple is right now: a leader in Technology, a cheap stock with a great P/E, and a tech growth stock which pays dividends. What more could you ask for?

HEALTHCARE

Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG)

Intuitive Surgical is a fantastic stock, this company is doing great things and will continue to impress. With the breakthrough of the DaVinci surgical system a few years ago this company has put out many new products and is continuously improving. They have high end technological medical equipment which makes surgeons jobs easier, improve success rates, and they will be the standard in years to come. While this stock fluctuated in between $500 to just under $600 in 2012 expect it to reach $700 in 2013 and hold support right around $600. All of their products are exciting breakthroughs and they have a well run company

BASIC MATERIALS

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM)

Exxon Mobil Corporation has always been one of my favorite plays when I think of gas and oil even though they are in the refinery business as well. The company just does things right, sets attainable goals, and sets itself up for success. I don’t necessarily think of Exxon Mobil as a heavy growth stock, but it often shoots up and gives you nice returns. If you pair that with a fair dividend, it’s a keeper.

CONSUMER GOODS

Proctor & Gamble (NYSE:PG)

Proctor & Gamble is one of the safest dividend stocks out there in my opinion, when other people think of General Electric I think of Proctor & Gamble. Proctor & Gamble puts out everyday products that everybody needs, and will always need. It’s like putting your money into Charmin, Duracell, Pringles, Crest, Bounty, Cascade, and Bounce. There leadership is second to none with Bob McDonald looking over the troops. This company offers a fantastic dividend and a bright future for investors.
