The Dow's 5 Most Loved Stocks

Simply put, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) had a remarkable year in 2013. With a 26.5% return it delivered three times the historic average return of the stock market as a whole. 

But, just because the market roared higher doesn't mean that optimists are ready to cash in their chips just yet. There exist, within the Dow, certain companies that short-sellers just wouldn't dare bet against. I like to refer to these companies as the Dow's 5 Most Loved Stocks. 

Today, as we do every month, we'll take a look at what five stocks are avoided most by short-sellers and see what, if anything, these five companies have in common that we can use to help our stock selection process in the future to pick out winning companies.
