Good Company. Lousy Stock.
Some good companies make lousy stocks:
Cisco (CSCO). GE (GE). Google (GOOG). Microsoft (MSFT). Wal-Mart (WMT) . General Motors (GM). And on and on.
The talking heads love them. But how well do they perform outside of a TV studio? Not very.
From Bill Gunderson in Forbes.com:
“There are stocks of yesteryear, and there are stocks for today,” he says. “Take Cisco (CSCO), for example. Over the last 10 years it has gone nowhere; over the past three years it has given negative returns. It became a stock of yesteryear five or six years ago.”
Other “stocks of yesteryear,” in his opinion, are Google (GOOG), Pfizer (PFE),Microsoft (MSFT)and Intel (INTC).
“Great companies all, but lousy as investments,” Bill Gunderson says.
Many investors look at these recognizable names as though “there is a warm blanket being wrapped around them,” he says, but favorable associations are not enough; one has to dig into their actual track record.
Prospects are not profits.

We watch trends. Not fads.
We look for one thing that has a lot of different names: Performance. Earnings. Profits.
If a stock has it, it makes the list of Best Stocks Now! If not, it doesn’t.
Sounds simple. It is. But still every day I see portfolios full of bad stocks. Mostly on Monday mornings when people are full of bad ideas from the weekend talking heads.
That is not investing. That is gambling. At least in Vegas they give you free stuff when they help you lose money.
The market is full of good stocks — if you know how to find them.
Today, the big stocks — the big so-called big caps — are just not doing the job for shareholders. Over the last ten years, Cisco (CSCO) has returned -1.2 percent. Microsoft (MSFT) has returned -1.0 percent. Pfizer (PFE) has returned -3.6 percent.
Yet the big brokers keeping stuffing them into portfolios.
Try a few of these from my list of 157 Best Stocks Now! I’ve had CSX Corp (CSX) on my list since 2004. They own trains . And distribute money for shareholders, averaging a 17.7 return over the last ten years.
Priceline (PCLN) is my stock of the decade. It has returned 78.8 percent over the last five years and has been a major holding of Gunderson Capital.
How about Panera Bread (PNRA)? Ross Stores (ROST)?
These are great stocks seldom mentioned in the national media. Yet they keep making money for their owners. The shareholders.
