Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2019

Russ Kaplan is a money manager and newsletter advisor who focuses on buying value-oriented stocks with a multi-year investment horizon; here’s his top idea for conservative investors over the coming year.

One of the most under appreciated stocks on Wall Street is Apple (APPL). The stock is among the bluest of blue chips.

Apple has a financial rating of A++. On every measure we see — such as price/earning ratio — Apple is undervalued.

With the death of its founder, investors were skeptical about new leadership, but Tim Cook has done an excellent job. He owns over one million shares of the stock.

Apple is constantly developing new products such as the Apple watch and this is not done as a short-term item being rushed onto the market.

Rather, the company takes a long-term perspective and views its product introductions as something that will constantly be improved over the years.
