If you had $1000 to invest in one stock what would it be?
a lot of people might say i'm crazy but i think a good investment would be in stocks for RIM (research in motion) i'm betting that though they have almost went bankrupt, they are now about to have a boom.
If you're looking for quasi-speculative I'd go with LeapFrog. If you're looking for a large company that will experience healthy growth for the next 20-30 years, I'd say Google. If you're looking for something with growth opportunity that pays a nice dividend, I'd say Intel or Microsoft.
All of these tech stocks have been mentioned. I want to go old school. My choice would be either Coca-Cola (KO) or Proctor and Gamble (PG). Look around your house; I'd bet that you have at least 2-3 PG items in your pantry, fridge or laundry room. They make things that we use every single day, and unlike tech stocks, nobody is going to invent a better paper towel that everybody "must have".
As for Coke, the stock has risen consistently over the last 30 years and always pay a dividend. They are also expanding their selection of more healthy drinks in response to the laws passed in New York. Also, even though it may not be good for you, people are not going to stop drinking Coke, diet Coke, Sprite, etc.
Apple. They have their ups and downs but overall I think they will continue to grow and dominate the market.
You can't lose with utility stocks. People are always going to need them, and they aren't going anywhere soon. Keep on hubbing
I'd go with a high quality household product stock like Proctor & Gamble. Their products will always be in demand regardless of the state of the economy.
As we get fatter and fatter our need for insulin will increase - I would go with the Danish company NovoNordisk for steady growth.
