I would have normally said KO or Wrigley's but recently I have noticed Bank of America (BAC). I believe that they could possibly be one of the next KOs. They have just been added to the DOW and at the recent market times, the have started coming down in price. I'm not saying they are great to buy now but who really knows? If we are going to go through a recession you should wait, but if we aren't, you might as well jump in. The problem is that nobody knows if we are going to go into a recession. I think there is a good chance that we will but still, I'm not saying to buy. I am sure though, that the stock will do good in long term but I'm not sure that now is the right time. That isn't that important though. What is important though is valueing a stock based on its quality, not off of timing.

It's worth noting that with regard to one investing style, called 'Dogs of the Dow' and its variations, some of those specifically exclude the very highest yielding Dow stock on the grounds that it's also the most likely to be in real trouble.

At this time, the highest yielding Dow stock is BAC.

One of the other things I would conider when looking at BAC is how they are handling their growth and the integration of acquisitions. They completed the purchase of LaSalle from ABN in the Autumn but how are they doing at retaining the customers, transitioning the systems etc? The biggest failure of most mergers and acquisitions is in the implementation (having orchestrated and been through a few). I don't know the answer but it is something to consider.

In general though, I think it is a great time to look at the banking and investment banking sectors because they have been so hard hit by the credit crunch. While they may not be at their bottom, they are well off their highs and people and companies will always ned money. I would keep the sector near the top of your list to study if you move beyond individual stocks and into sector studies.

Ditto! I would only add that real estate has been beat up pretty bad as well. Might be a good time to get into banking stocks or real estate stocks. Both are out of favor, but how long can that last?
