45 Household Names To Sell Right Away

September 7, 2017

As expected, the stock market rallied ahead of the Labor Day holiday last week. The S&P 500 went up about 1.4%, while the Dow tacked on a 0.8% gain. Now that the Labor Day holiday is over, however, the next big surge likely won't come until the last 10 trading days of September, as portfolio managers use that time to do a little house cleaning. Before then, though, we need to get the losers out of our own portfolios so we don't tack on any significant losses when that happens.

In today's blog, I'll show you how to trim the dead weight in your portfolio. I'm talking about all the companies that announced mixed earnings results last quarter or have sloppy guidance looking forward. Of course, it can be tedious reviewing the latest earnings results for each of your companies. So, I've broken down the top 45 big blue chips you should steer clear of right now.

To wrap up, the best thing you can do to prepare (and to weather the current trading activity) is invest solely in companies with the best earnings prospects. Of course, the best place to start is to run your portfolio through my Portfolio Grader screening tool. It doesn't take much to see that sticking to A- and B-rated stocks pays off big in the long run.

Sincerely,
