Not a good year for these stocks, relatively speaking. One of these years pharma is going to outperform, but it certainly wasn't 2010. Barnes and Noble stumbled this year, which also didn't help. Black Box did well and a couple others were okay, but the average 3% return is nowhere near the S&P500 return of around 13%.

I'm not planning on continuing to post this exercise, but I will go ahead and list my 2011 picks, without a lot of comment. Pharma again predominates and a lot of carryover from last year.

MRK, T, MDT, BMY, AMGN, INTC, MSFT, JNJ, PG, D.

Intel and Dominion join the portfolio. Microsoft makes a return from previous years. All the others are repeats from last year. BBOX, BKS and PFE fall off the list, but I still hold them in my larger portfolio. All large caps now. AMGN is the sole non-dividend payer.
