Stocks to Continue to Rule the World

Intel
Microsoft
Cisco
Nokia
Oracle
EMC
Yahoo
Sun
Ericsson

Regardless of whether they are a Gorilla, a Godzilla, a King etc, these stocks are all 800lb heavyweights which dominate their industry and have many defensible advantages because of which they command their huge market caps. So the "risk" I am getting at is the risk of their losing that dominant position.

*****

Sorry! Forgot to mention that this particular list overlaps the Workshop Model Spark screen. MSFT, NOK, SUNW, but not Ericsson have appeared on Spark in past months. Perhaps you can use Spark to help you classify the heavyweights. You get to decide if this is coincidence or something else. (:
