I really wish they would get rid of this time-wasting slideshow format.  Go back to the old list that I could cut/paste into a spreadsheet.
would be nice to put a list of the top 50

A simple solution would be to cut government and reduce the national debt. Get past the idea that raising taxes by a dollar and increasing spending by two dollars will end our problems. Stimulating an economy by spending what we don’t have only compounds the problem.

As the Fed prints more money the title sums it up well." Stocks to pick this month" then hope you can make some money and short it and go back to metals or oil. Until this government can show they can  and it never will we are past the tipping point, get its act together and pass legislation that helps out the American people if I can't physically touch it I aint buying it, metamorphically of course. I can touch metal and gas but not shares of a restaurant. 1 in 7 people are on foodstamps who is going out to eat at restaurants that don't accept food stamps cuz I aint heard of one yet. Democrat or Republican, I don't care. Practically every bridge in the country may collapse any day, why can't a jobs bill be passed to fix and upgrade infrastructure? We spend more on prisons than we do schools. What the ^%*&^* is up with that? Why are teachers,cops,firemen,paramedics, road crews and the like unemployed or understaffed when all it takes is congress to allocate the money to make it happen. They can fund the military to the tune of almost 1/3 of our entire budget and growing with no enemies  to fight except in their national security minds. Yes, we got terrorist to hunt down but do we need 12 in service carriers and building more to do it? 5000 abram tanks to chase them down. The wounded Vets from Iraq ,which should have never happened, and Afghanistan which should have been over 10 years ago, have to depend on charities to get all the care they so much deserve.The poor guys and girls that joined the national guard just to help out here at home in disasters and make some money for school or just service to country got sucked up into these unrealistic rotations in and out of combat for wars that should have never happened or should have been over years ago.We have now spent a TRILLION $$$$ on these 2 wars and still going.Another 700 BILLION $$$$ to banks that just sat on the money and tightened credit and gambled our money away like a drunk with a broken watch and an ATM card at a Mohawk casino.

Geez where does it end?

I want a list to look at and copy.  I appreciate your info, but I do not have the time or patience to look at videos
Sep 4, 2012 2:50AM
This sux,I thought it would be a list,not a bunch of clips that I would have to watch. Is MSNBC so desperate for viewers that they have to trick people to watch this.

when I check the daily Top 10 picks, they are different. I'm not sure to understand this. For ex., if instead of the monthly top 10, I were to pickup 10 stocks on the 8th of the month, could I expect similar returns? Or better, should I pick, any day, a 10 rated with 3 "in favors" and replace them by others when they lose the ratings?
Thanks for opinions

Thank you, and I agree, I wish StockScouter would simply list the top 10 or 50 stocks, as mentioned by others, instead of how it is formatted. Even so, I rely on StockScouter and consider it's information, prior to selecting stocks.

Got rid of my post? So much for free speech conservatives.  Econ 101:  Want to increase aggregate demand, spur growth and increase revenues to pay down the deficit.  Give an American a job.  Stop outsourcing.  Can I get someone on the phone at these corporate help numbers whose first language is English please and who is located on American soil? Thank you.

It's simply incredible how the flying monkey traders are all wringing their hands as they anticipate another round of stupidity by Ben Dover Bernanke.

Gene Dalessio, Ted Hower, and fran lewis, are the same person. They are shills for the Democratic party. The Democratic party and their media cohorts will stop at nothing to take the heat off Obama for totally screwing the economy. Their mantra will be " The rich get richer"  and  lies about tax cuts for the rich", etc. till the election because they don't want the conversation to be about the economy.

All is good; that is until the story "Stocks waver...falter...sink...are down" etc, on "conerns of European debt crisis appears. MSN has a habit of recycling the same old story several times a month.

Seems to be another way to get people to spend money chasing rainbows. Not looking out for my pocketbook

How is it possible that a strong solid proven winner like COSTCO doesn't even make the list at all? Mark this point; positive hopefuls and pessimistic doomsayers alike save great money at a worldwide growing warehouse club, that doesn't even advertise! Their greatest competitors - each with aggressive and costly advertising, poor employee treatment, and negligent customer services - are merely drifting in the wake of Costco's' counterintuitive business plan which is akin to making more, by charging less. Not only are they big enough to get the better deal on goods, they religiously limit their profit and pass on any additional savings. Thus loyalty and word of mouth have truly made them a gigantic winner in american business, even to be seen as such worldwide. Make a fast buck on defense, or on pharmaceuticals, ore on metals, even web'nologies... but a stable serious dollar on a stable serious (with everything from coffee to coffins) company, who's' difference in game plan has always been successful, is a dollar destined to deliver on it's goods.

I'm not sure those making the decisions on how "news" and/or financial information is presented even understand the consequences of what they are doing. Video or slideshow is clearly the format of choice for marketing to "Tweenage" girls, and ALL content, no matter the intended audience is automatically converted to that format for presentation. Virtually every website is doing the same thing. Before the internet, we all had use print, or pay the high price for a private data feed if we could afford it. The day is not far away where anyone attempting to manage their own investments will have to go back to private data feed to do so.

Do some real research before spewing your conservative agenda.  Deficits are necessary for this economy.  The following is an excerpt from Cullen Roche.  Read up on Modern Monetary Theory to understand why you are wrong.


"There is one thing that is helping to destroy this great nation and that is the persistent fear mongering that is constantly peddled by people who are pushing a political agenda based on false perceptions of the US monetary system. This environment of perpetual fear is helping to scare the greatest entrepreneurs in the world from doing what they do best. In the meantime, the rest of the world is eating our lunch.

All of this fear mongering is misguided, but helping to do one thing well – cause the currency users to fear the economy they exist within. And therein lies the most interesting component of this entire debate. These misguided fears could be the very thing that threaten this country the most. It’s time for Americans to stop being scared by old rich white men selling books and newsletters". - Cullen Roche

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market finished the Tuesday session on the defensive after spending the entire day in a steady retreat. The S&P 500 (-0.6%) posted its third consecutive decline, while the small-cap Russell 2000 (-0.9%) slipped behind the broader market during afternoon action.

Equity indices were pressured from the start following some overnight developments that weighed on sentiment. The market tried to overcome the early weakness, but could not stage a sustained rebound, ... More
