35 Top Stocks for This Holiday Season

The tax relief coming out of Washington, D.C. was just what the doctor ordered to stem the profit-taking mood that overcame Wall Street for much of the past few weeks. In fact, last week sent most of the broader indices soaring to new all-time highs as we kicked off trading on Monday. Even though, for the rest of this week, those same indices have been struggling to climb even higher. In today’s blog, I’m giving you the gift of my top A-rated stocks to help you harness this Holiday Season’s power for your own portfolio…

So, without any further ado, here are 35 A-rated stocks to help you head into this Holiday Season in a position of relative strength:

Remember, you can always check your stock ratings in Portfolio Grader. When you run your holdings through this screening tool, take note of each stock’s Quantitative Grade (the current level of institutional buying pressure) and each stock’s Fundamental Grade (a weighted blend of eight financial metrics). Also check which of your stocks are rated as Conservative, Moderately Aggressive or Aggressive. Shoot to have 60% of your holdings in Conservative stocks, 30% in Moderately Aggressive and 10% in Aggressive. I can’t stress this last point enough because aggressive stocks will be the first ones to take a beating during a correction.

Until tomorrow,
