I recommend the depressed technology market, the pharmaceutical market, and the transportation market. I tend to be contrary and go to the notion that you want to buy low and sell high. These are sectors that have been out of favor and have not done well in the last three years. I’m looking for upside potential in the markets over the next three to five years, and I believe these sectors will be placed to make handsome returns.

SBC Communications is a very attractive stock because not only does it have potential for very attractive growth, but it also has a very good dividend.

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. is a company that has a tremendous financial position to make it through the tough times. It also has the option to give you a dividend in the 5% range that can help you wait patiently for the company to return to pro
fitability.

Southwest Airlines has demonstrated over the years that it has an excellent management team to manage its assets, to manage its profits, and its company. It has done exceptionally well during one the worst times in the airline industry’s history, and once the war issue is over and oil prices trickle back down to $25 to $28 a barrel, that’s going to be very beneficial to its bottom line. wclark@clarkcapital.net.

I believe there is going to be an economic recovery once the uncertainty of war ends and we have recovering corporate spending. My picks will benefit from this trend.

Dell Computer has practiced just-in-time management, or just-in-time manufacturing. Its financials are strong right now. It has been implementing cost-cutting measures, and it is selling more high-end laptops and servers. It will benefit strongly from a business recovery.

Walgreens is one of the largest drug store chains in the U.S. that should benefit from demographics. As the baby boomer generation gets older, and they’re health begins to decline, you’re going to see an increase in prescription drug use. And Walgreens should be the beneficiary.

 Harley Davidson, another baby boom play, has been doing well despite what is going on in the economy. It is also selling well internationally in Europe and Japan. It has really put more emphasis on quality, which was part of the company’s turnaround. The Dunagan Group, 312-930-0856

Since most clients coming to me now are conservative, I’m recommending mutual funds that are low cost, have managers who have handled the account for at least five
