Here's a recap of this week's selections:

FedEx (NYSE: FDX): While the world increasingly transmits documents digitally, Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner sees a bright future for the growth of delivering hard goods. Click here to see FedEx's buy recommendation. Or watch David's video on FedEx here.

IberiaBank (Nasdaq: IBKC): Motley Fool Pro analyst Todd Wenning thinks he has found a diamond in the regional banking rough. While investors may be skittish about getting back into banking, IberiaBank largely managed to avoid the subprime mess and has picked up failed banks on the cheap since. The company has a solid capital position and a very low rate of non-performing loans. Click here to see IberiaBank's buy recommendation. Or watch Todd's video here.

Aeropostale (NYSE: ARO): Foolish writer Alyce Lomax thinks clothing retailer Aeropostale is the best back-to-school deal you can find. The company trades at a P/E around 10, has a solid balance sheet stuffed with cash, and caters well to consumers tightening their wallets. Click here to see Aeropostale's buy recommendation.

Madison Square Garden (Nasdaq: MSG): Are you a major sports fan but haven't figured out a way to profit from the industry? Stock Advisor analyst Bryan White thinks he has just the right play for you. Bryan recommended Madison Square Garden on the basis of its valuable ownership of two New York sports franchises: the Knicks and the Rangers. In addition, the company owns valuable cable outlets for broadcasting team events. Add it all up, and Madison Square Garden looks cheaply priced.

Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT): Fool analyst Jim Royal says Wal-Mart is a winner in just about any environment. Whether we see inflation or deflation, Wal-Mart's massive scale and ability to wring price concessions out of its suppliers is a key advantage. If the defensive nature of Wal-Mart isn't enough to convince you, the company also boasts a juicy 2.4% dividend yield that has grown by 16% annually over the past five years.
