22 Stocks For 2002

With the markets at their lowest levels in years, B.E. picks 22 stocks that could put you in a prime position to profit when the economy rebounds

and a 1.9% dividend to pay as well. 5 A provider of prescription and pharmaceutical benefits, the company should benefit from strong drug price increases this year. 6 Power demand increases should push along Dynergy which trades and produces electrical energy and natural gas. 7 High fashion should help Claiborne move upward in a recovery. New product lines and mergers should help until then.8 MBNA’s program to promote credit cards through groups, clubs, and organizations has been a winner. 9 Any pickup in consumer confidence should send the second largest carpet and rug maker’s shares skyward. 10 SCI, which manufactures electronics for big computer and tech companies, is poised for a tech rebound. A good buy alone or if taken over by Sanmina Corp. (SANM). 11 There’s good news for the company that operates the Foot Locker chain: Athletic wear is casual wear and casual is in at the office and at school.
