A Spotlight Favorite might be a stock I have followed for many years, or possibly a new stock that I have recently added to the list. It is hard to get on the list and I do not add very many but over the years the list has grown.  Although all the stocks on the list are for the long term I do believe there are times to either buy them, hold them or sell them. I do not believe in holding a stock forever because forever is a long time. Think about all the shareholders in General Motors when it filed bankruptcy. They lost everything. I do believe there is a time to sell a favorite and buy it back again when it falls. I hope you enjoy my picks as they cover a wide range of prices. If we want to get into this market we have to look for bargains in the small caps and special situations in the low-priced arena. Choose wisely! (more)
