"Freewilly's Stockpicker Blog - Value pick lineup for 2017. I decided to make it like an NFL team Offense with 11 Picks.Only the very best make the team."

Dow Jones Industrial Average 19,963.80 (Up) Week ending 01-06-2017

Well it is that time of year again when we put forth predictions on which Value stocks will work the best for your portfolio. I decided to keep it to the eleven best picks instead of 17 for the year number. I feel your portfolio should be more focused and concentrated to get you the best results. Pick only the best. Hard to do with the market at all-time highs.

I laid them out like a NFL Offense football team by position. Here they are:

Wide Receiver - Under Armour Inc.  (Symbol UAA)

              Tackle - Lennar Corp.   (Symbol LEN) 

              Guard - Activision- Blizzard Inc. (Symbol ATVI)

              Center - CVS Health Corp. (Symbol CVS)

              Guard  - Blackstone Group LP (Symbol BX)

               Tackle - Skyworks Solutions Inc. (Symbol SWKS)

         Tight End - Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company (Symbol GT)

           Fullback -  INSYS Therapeutics Inc. (Symbol INSY)

    Quarterback - Amgen Inc.  (Symbol AMGN)

  Wide Receiver - Lending Tree Inc. (Symbol TREE)

  Running Back - Align Technologies - (Symbol ALGN)

Honorable Mention: Whirlpool Inc.(Symbol WHR) , International Business Machines (Symbol IBM), Suntrust (Symbol STI) and Rio Tinto (Symbol RIO).

I currently own 7 of the 11 team picks for 2017 and have faith in the other four. I will discuss these picks as the year moves forward. Amgen Inc. is actually the quarterback of my real team and is in fact my largest holding of any individual stock. I think this is a good mix of stocks. I would carefully pick your entry points to maximize your returns.  

I think that you will be able to buy some stocks after the Trump Inauguration. I think that we will have an 7 to 8 % correction as the honeymoon is over and the President has to get down to the business of running the country. The second half of the year will be better to see the results of any pro-business changes in US fiscal policy made this year. 

 Best of luck and health in the new year. Keep concentrated in your very best picks this year.

Sincere regards,
