The following video is from Tuesday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the analysts discuss three stocks that have been kind to them this year. Ron talks about Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL) and its explosion this year, which has paralleled the ramping up of the housing market recovery. James tells us why he's thankful for Johnson and Johnson's (NYSE:JNJ) 10% climb this year, despite the fact that the company has been plagued with recall scandals. And Joe discusses how happy he is with Visa (NYSE:V) which is up 50% this year, and how it's a company that has the capital to buy its way into any changes in the market as mobile payments begin to take off.
