June 2007 Issue

Rodney Dangerfield may be gone, but Wall Street’s “I don’t get no respect” bull market is keeping his legacy alive. Dow at another new all-time high? Shrug. Takeovers spiking stocks left and right? Yawn. We’re in the midst of what ought to be a rollicking party, and most of the guests are half-asleep!
To be honest with you, I’m delighted with this state of affairs. It suggests that the advance will last longer, and climb to far greater heights, than the majority of observers now expect. When this bull is ready to keel over, it will be from too much revelry�not an excess of caution.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to pinpoint the safest, most value-packed stocks in this underappreciated market. Remarkably, some of my top candidates are household names, giants “hidden in plain sight.” I’ve got three for you that could easily pop 20%�30% in the coming year, with even bigger gains down the road.

More and more bargains are turning up on my radar screen, including a brand-new name for us: one of the world’s largest and best-run management-consulting firms, now at a whopping 50% discount to my estimated share price three to four years out. Yet I’ll bet you’ve never heard of the stock. (There’s a curious reason why.)

The Thousand-Mile Journey

We’ve just taken the first two steps.
Yesterday and today, buyers came out of their Wall Street bomb shelters and made their first tentative purchases. Another good up day tomorrow would help, but we’re still in the earliest stages of a long recovery road for stocks. Be prepared for lots of back and forth action as the market indexes try to form a solid bottom.

Selling Climax

We finally saw one yesterday in American International Group (NYSE: AIG). After sinking to a new 52-week low in the first few minutes of trading, AIG stock roared higher (up 2.5% on the day) on triple its average daily volume.

Not as Ugly as It Looks

Stocks keep wallowing around near their lows for the month (and the New Year). Don’t despair, though. The picture isn’t as bleak as it looks. For one thing, the sellers haven’t been able to build much momentum. Usually, when the indexes are about to slide off a cliff, the market tips its hand.

SPOOKY SENTIMENT

Stock prices have steadied for the past two days after Monday’s jolt. But don’t get too comfy in your armchair yet. The market bumped up against an important ceiling last Thursday. The next few weeks could bring a 5%-8% decline in the major indexes.
