Just looking at the charts: XOM is a buy, CAT is in a period of decline, so buying it would entail some bottom fishing, and YUM is a buy.I cannot find the symbol for Nestles, however. I would not, of course, limit any portfolio to just 4 stocks. Generally, my rule is that you should have at least 10 stocks and be able to come up with $10,000 for each. Even 10 is a bit low for comfort. But that is subjective.I don't know if you are just starting out or not. If you don't have at least $100,000, I recommend mutual funds. A good list of managed funds is: ARTIX, CGMRX, EUROX, IZZYX, JATTX, OBCHX, PAGRX, PSPFX, UMEMX, and VALUX. That combination of funds has done very well over the last several years. I do own them all. But check them out yourself. While the combination is diversified, it is slanted toward small caps and emerging markets. There are a number of other good funds also. Avoid funds with loads.
