Top Investment Picks Contest for 2018

Hi all,

I am compiling a list of top investment picks from the investing community. There is no prize, except bragging rights ūüėČ As usual, this is meant to be a fun exercise to capture our collective ideas.

You can follow previous year’s picks here.

I have reached out privately to some of the people I regularly interact with, but if you haven’t heard from me, and would like to participate, please get in touch with me and I will add your entry.¬†Be sure to include

  1. Your (blog) name
  2. Your top investment pick for 2018
  3. Reason why you think the pick is the best asset to invest in.

You can pick any asset you like Рa stock, bond, commodity, a cryptocurrency etc. Please get your picks in before Dec 31. I will compile the list and post it on the blog in early January.

Best Regards,
R2R

Note that you can track the progress anytime by going to the Stock Picks page.

Top Investment Picks for 2017

As the new year rolls out, I decided that it would be a fun experiment to run and collect top investment picks for 2017. I reached out to the community of bloggers that I regularly interact with and asked them to participate in this collection. I performed the same exercise and the post garnered a lot of attention from the dividend investing community and readers in general. I recently posted the results¬†on how the overall picks did over the course of the year in 2016. There are still some great picks from the 2016 top picks, and I invite you to check them for ideas. Anyway, back to the 2017 list…

The rules were simple: Pick one investment (either a stock or a fund or a commodity or any other form of investment), and present a short & quick investment reason behind the pick. Most bloggers I reached out to were happy to comply and shared their pick.

Top Investment Picks for 2017

Before I present the picks, I would like to remind the readers that these are simply picks based on current outlook and each investor should perform due diligence before investing in any of the companies mentioned. Also, the investors I reached out to are long term investors, so I discourage readers to trade in and out of these investments based on the data presented here simply because it is their top pick at the moment. It is very hard to predict what the stock/market will do over the course of one year, let alone a quarter or two.

Without further ado, here are the top picks from the blogging community for 2017. Some of the investors are not necessarily bloggers, and are some folks I regularly interact with via social media and other forums — in which case, I have linked to their public profile. The ‘DGF’ referred to next to some of the names refers to Dividend Growth Forum.
