You heard right. Large-cap blue chip stocks!
But why blue chips? Why now?
For one thing, profits at America's top companies… the blue chips… are soaring to record levels. And cash is overflowing their coffers.
Yet, the stocks have gone nowhere fast… for five years running!
As a result, large-cap stocks are downright cheap — especially when compared with their mid- and small-cap peers.
Which explains why even legendary value hound Warren Buffett is gobbling up blue chips right now!
And rock-bottom prices are just one reason the "real" smart money agrees blue chips are set to rally… and soon.
Here are three more urgent signs that the perfect storm may be brewing for blue chip investors NOW…
STRONG in a weak economy… Fifteen straight increases in short-term interest rates by the Federal Reserve will eventually cool the economy, says Tom McManus, strategist at Bank of America.
When it does, investors looking for safety will be attracted by the lower valuations, higher dividends and more stable earnings of bigger companies.
SAFETY in a choppy market… Large-cap stocks are historically less volatile… especially in dicey markets. Remember the 1970s?
The S&P 500's loss of 14.7% and 26.5% in 1973 and 1974 was tame next to the 35.1% and 28.2% declines of small caps, according to the Center for Research in Security Prices.
DIVIDENDS… dividends… dividends… New tax laws make dividends more desirable than ever. Plus, American companies (especially the blue chips) are sitting on billions in excess cash, some of which will have to be paid out to shareholders.
Of course, should markets continue to roil, dividends will be even more in demand… so will the blue chip stocks that pay them!
Put it together and this once-in-a-generation disconnect could be YOUR last chance to stuff your portfolio with investments that offer…
The trick is to know which blue chips are poised for massive gains and which are destined for the trash heap of history.
Because make no mistake about it… Not all "blue chips" are created equal. (Remember Enron and Worldcom?)
Faker "blue chips" like those can sink you! And there are dozens more just like them.
In fact, a team of the nation's top stock analysts unexpectedly discovered 7 so-called "blue chip" companies that may be threatening to shatter your dreams of financial independence right now.
Now, you can get the names of all 7 of these potential landmines FREE (details just ahead)!
Of course, dumping these potential time bombs is only half the battle. You'll also need to replace them with the very best, safest, REAL blue chip stocks.
There will never be a better time or an easier way!
Ordinarily, you'd have to join one of The Motley Fool's premium newsletter services to get TOP stock recommendations from co-founders David and Tom Gardner.
Now, you can get the TOP Blue Chip recommendations from David and Tom in one easy-to-read volume… and it won't cost you anything near the price of an annual membership.
This really is the perfect storm for you.
After all, blue chips are sitting at their best prices in years just waiting to be plucked… AND The Motley Fool has just published its annual Blue Chip Stock Report.
It's called, 10 Monster Stocks to Anchor Your Portfolio, and David and Tom's top picks are two of the wealth-boosting, portfolio-saving investments you'll discover in its 51 pages of detailed research!
You may have heard that Tom Gardner is clobbering the S&P 500 with his Hidden Gems® small-cap value recommendations — to the tune of an average 25-plus percentage points per pick!
So, how does Tom consistently pick winners that trounce the market? His secret is roughly 20% talent and 80% old-fashioned hard work.
For one thing, he screens hundreds of companies per month.
Of course, Tom occasionally snags a large-cap BLUE CHIP that fits his strict valuation criteria, but that's simply too big to recommend to his Hidden Gems members.
Now, imagine if you could get your hands on the ONE blue chip Tom insists can make you the most money.
Well you can! It's a leading national retailer where…
Meanwhile, the company recently booked its 14th consecutive year of record earnings in 2005, en route to generating $525 million in cash flow.
So, you'd imagine the stock must be on a tear, right? Amazingly, not yet. In fact, it has traded flat over a three-year period — and is actually down over the past 18 months.
I think you can see why Tom insists this stock can earn you 20%-25% annual returns over the next five years. But only if you get in before investors wake up to this great bargain!
Of course, that's just a brief overview. You can get the full details when you claim your personal copy of, The Motley Fool's Blue Chip Report: 10 Monster Stocks to Anchor Your Portfolio.
David Gardner is also crushing the market… most famously with the portfolio of ultimate growth picks he's serving up for members of his Rule BreakersTM service.
And also like Tom, David has settled on ONE top blue chip he's convinced can make you a ton of money for years to come. But what makes this company so special David chose it above all others?
Well, unlike David's usual Rule Breakers, which depend heavily on technology and R&D spending, this American icon thrives on the risk-taking and capital expenditures of others… maverick risk-takers like Amazon and eBay.
Now, it's your turn to reap the benefits of this unique relationship…
This company's name is even a verb! Meanwhile, an exploding footprint in China and India makes this franchise more relevant than ever and puts it at the very heart of our "just in time" global economy.
No wonder the stock has tripled in the last five years. Yet, you hardly ever hear it mentioned on CNBC or in The Journal.
That's another reason why David sees plenty of room to run for you.
So, if you're looking for a stock sharing equally the adjectives "safe," "domestic," "growth," and "global," look at David Gardner's top pick on page 17 of 10 Monster Stocks!
As soon as it flashes on your screen, you'll agree your opportunity to be among the first to get David and Tom's TOP blue chip recommendations is worth more than the modest cost of the report.
