Turfunderground’s Top 5 Stocks for 2011

Eric von Hofen at Wall Street
The last two years have provided us with the most difficult financial times we have ever seen in our life time.  Many people were living high on the hog when the DOW closed at 14,093.08 on October 12, 2007.  It was at an all time high. Golf courses were thriving and so was the housing market.  Then eighteen months later on March 6, 2009, the DOW closed at 6,626.94.  Trillions of dollars of wealth had been wiped out, banks were closing down, the housing market stalled and golfers were missing in action.  What a roller coster ride it has been.  Today, December 13, 2010, the DOW closed at 11,428.56. Things are looking up and I have five stocks that I think will continue to produce in 2011.

1. SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) $136.05- Worried about inflation?  This gold ETF will help protect you against China and the US monetary policy.  It’s a lot easier to get rid of than a gold coin or bar.
2. Marvell Technology (MRVL) $19.15- This firm provides data storage and broadband communications processors.  Can you say Kindle?  How about Google’s Android?
3. Apple (APPL) $321.67- Ipads, Ipods, Apple TV, and Mac Books will continue to produce large amounts of cash to this already $295 billion dollar market cap company.  Get on board.  Soon Asia will be eating lots of Apples.
4. Goldman Sachs (GS) $169.48- This big house will continue to run the table on M&A activity and their trading desk makes millions of dollars each day.  WIth more clarity coming from Washington each day, this stock could do great in the years to come.
5. Caterpillar (CAT) $91.63- Cat is the biggest player in the heavy machinery business and is getting even bigger by purchasing it’s rival, Bucyrus. Growth in China and South America will also help this companies’ bottom line.

There are no guarantees in the stock market or in any type of market, so please contact a professional before you take my advice. This is only my opinion on how these stocks will do next year.
