Big Name Growth StocksAmey Stone
Often when I interview a money manager, he or she is full of recommendations of stocks that are either too small or unknown to be of much use to the average investor. The companies may sound like original ideas -- which is what you's expect from a money manager -- but if they aren't recognizable names, a prudent investor would need to do a lot more research before buying one of the individual picks on his or her own.
That's why I was interested in the big-cap growth stock picks of Christopher Zook, a money manager in Houston, who stopped by the office last week. He offered up a list of household names -- like Microsoft, AIG, Wal-Mart -- that he thinks it makes sense to buy now.
For more details on his methodology and why he likes the stock, you can check out the full story.
But the 10 stocks he named are:
American International Group (AIG)
Eastman Kodak (EK)
Cisco System (CSCO)
Morgan Stanley (MWD)
