7 Stocks Set To Rise at Least 20% and Surpass $100 in 2012


When I select a stock for an investment one of my priority criteria is that the potential price appreciation has to be at least 20%. This provides enough price return to make me willing to accept the risk of my investment.
On a totally different level, there is a great feeling one gets when a stock that they own goes from double digits (i.e., below $100) to triple digits (i.e. over $100). Quite often that move is not fleeting but the beginning of more dramatic longer term price and earnings growth. Take for example stocks like Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), International Business Machines (IBM) and the granddaddy of them all, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/A). International Business Machines, thanks to having split its stock on multiple occasions has broken the $100 price several times.
So, I thought it would be a good idea to marry these two seemingly unrelated concepts together, both of which are indicative of a strong stock. Doing so has resulted in creating the following portfolio of stocks that have 20% price appreciation potential and will go above the $100 price level in 2012.
