Best Gold Stocks To Buy Right Now

[ August 16, 2013 | Author: admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

Costco (NASDAQ: COST  ) was one of the first stocks I purchased for the Prosocial Portfolio I’m managing for Fool.com. It’s one of my very favorites — a company that sets high standards in an industry that generally keeps their standards pretty low. However, I have failed to add to my position.

That’s about to change. Finally, I’m purchasing a little more of this gold-standard stock for the portfolio now, two years after the initial buy, and it’s long overdue.

An increasing competitive advantage
Costco’s been a real winner since I purchased it for the portfolio in December 2010, and before. The company has been a success both in terms of operations and stock price, even weathering the worst of the recessionary environment.

When I bought shares of Costco for the Prosocial Portfolio, which seeks to include positive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in its design, I may have lost a few people. I got the impression that some people couldn’t fathom how Costco could possibly be considered a socially responsible company.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Victor Mora]

    Activision Blizzard provides online entertainment products and services to a growing group of people worldwide. The company is now attempting to repurchase itself from its French owner. The stock has been on a strong surge higher in recent months, and is now trading near highs for the year. Over the last four quarters, it seems investors in the company have expected more, but earnings and revenue figures have been rising. Relative to its peers and sector, Activision Blizzard has been an average year-to-date performer. Look for Activision Blizzard to OUTPERFORM.

    This video game creator has been lagging in the past 12 months compared to other stocks. With fall around the corner and strong titles coming out I think this stock will start to pickup. A PEG of 0.1 shows this stock is undervalued big time.
