This was an incredible year for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI), which delivered investors a 27% total return. As we head into 2014, Fool contributor Travis Hoium looks at three stocks he thinks will outperform next year. They're not the highflying names on the Dow, but rather some underloved stocks.
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has struggled to keep up in mobile, but 2014 will bring a new line of products that increase its competitiveness. The chipmaker has already won the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 contract, and a few major smartphone wins could send this stock soaring. A 13.3 P/E ratio and 3.6% dividend yield give it plenty of upside.
Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) is another company the market loves to hate, but $32 billion in net cash can't be ignored, and, trading at eight times earnings after pulling out that cash balance, it's a steal.
Finally, 3M (NYSE:MMM) is back on its feet, and organic growth is already picking up. Management sees 9% to 11% earnings growth through 2017, which gives investors lots of upside in 2014.
