Sivy says …
Like any good financial columnist, Sivy has suggestions. In his 2005 column, he listed Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN), Cisco Systems, FedEx (NYSE: FDX), Intel, Lowe’s, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), Raytheon (NYSE: RTN), 3M, Citigroup, DuPont, Pfizer, and Sara Lee.
