Barron's goes to bat for a ton of stocks and we pick our top 3 favorites.

The Barron's impact is sure to hit The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT) on Monday in a positive way.  The same can be said for QUALCOMM, Inc. (QCOM) and Visa Inc
(V) but it won't be as big as GT.

You have to pay up to read the article, it can be found here 'Barron's 500 Bargains? Perhaps'.  Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT) is really talked up in the article and Friday it closed at $12.37.  We expect a big increase this week in GT shares.  Goodyear trades with a P/E Ratio of 15.1 and EPS of 0.82.  YTD Goodyear shares are down 5%, this will be the boost the company needs to catchup with the major indexes.

The other two stocks we like from the article are QCOM and V.  If you read us and trade stocks you should be familiar with these names.  Here's how they are trading:

  • Qualcomm Inc (QCOM) shares are at $63.77.  QCOM shares are now trading with a P/E Ratio of 18 and EPS of 3.56.  QCOM also pays a 2.2% annual dividend yield.
