Our primary purpose is to assist investors in growing their capital and income base from which to derive cash for their current and future needs.


To that end we believe that high-quality stocks purchased at historically low-price-to-high-yield offer the best potential for downside protection and upside appreciation.


Our Timely Ten list is not just another "best of, right now" list. It is our reasoned expectation based on our methodology and experience for what we believe will perform best over the next five years.


Do we believe that all 10 will go up simultaneously or immediately? Of course not. Our four-plus decades of research and experience, however, leads us to believe that these stocks, purchased at current Undervalued levels, are well positioned for both growth of capital and income.


Whether you are looking to build a portfolio from scratch, are partially invested and looking to add new positions, or fully invested and in need of some affirmation and hand holding, The Timely Ten represents our top ten current stock recommendations.


Our latest Timely Ten selections are:


CVS Caremark (CVS) - yielding 1.6%

Coca-Cola Co. (KO) - yielding  2.7%

TJX Companies (TJX) - yielding 1.2%

Walgreen Company (WAG) - yielding 2.3%

Air Products & Chemicals (APD) - yielding 3.3%

PepsiCo (PEP) - yielding 2.7%

Becton, Dickinson (BDX) - yielding 2.1%

Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) - yielding 2.4%

ConocoPhillips (COP) - yielding 4.5%

Reliance Steel (RS) - yielding 1.8%


The Timely Ten consists of historically undervalued stocks that generally have a S&P Dividend & Earnings Quality rating of A- or better, and show exemplary long-term dividend growth.


These stocks also have a price-to-earnings ratio of 15 or less, a payout ratio of 50% or less, debt of 50% or less, and technical characteristics on the daily and weekly charts that suggests the potential for imminent capital appreciation.
