These 51 Blue Chips Are On the Move

Before I get to today’s blog, I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the tragic events that occurred in France over the weekend. The aftermath of terrorist attacks are never easy to watch, whether they are foreign or domestic. And my heart goes out to all those impacted by the attacks in Paris. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

During these busy times, it pays to stay on top of the latest profit opportunities. And today’s blog post should be a great place to start. After taking a close look at the latest data on institutional buying pressure and each company’s fundamental health, I decided to revise my Portfolio Grader recommendations for 51 big blue chips. Chances are that you have at least one of these stocks in your portfolio, so you may want to give this list a skim and act accordingly.
