10 High-Quality Stocks for 2012

Description:

According to Michael Baron, "Whatever the rest of the year brings, S&P Capital IQ is feeling pretty bullish about 2012, especially the first half of the year. The firm lifted its year-end 2012 target for the S&P 500 to 1400 from 1360 on Wednesday, citing improved economic data of late and a belief that the low of 1100 in early October concluded a "near miss" correction phase. ... As for individual stocks, S&P Capital IQ ran a screen to find high quality names for individual investors using its MarketScope Advisor research platform. The ten stocks that follow met criteria of growing earnings over the past 10 years, having a dividend yield of 3% or more, and ratings from S&P Capital IQ's analysts of either strong buy or buy complemented by proprietary Quality Rankings of B+ or higher."
