Stocks To Buy at Today's Support Levels, March 17, 2011

(May 16, 2011 update: All future stock posts will appear on my new subscription-only website at Please visit!)

Here are some stocks which I discussed this year in previous blog posts. They are at good buy prices based on the recent market downturn, and the stocks being low in their trading ranges OR not having falling to any significant degree.

General Electric (GE $19.51) -- I discussed GE on January 24, and it's at a buy price again.

The Coca-Cola Company (KO $62.69) -- I discussed KO on Jan. 26 with a trading range of $62.5-$65.5. It's a buy again.

General Dynamics (GD $74.94) -- January 26 blog post.

United Parcel Service (UPS $72.26) -- January 27 blog post.

Nordstrom (JWN $42.79) -- I discussed JWN on Jan. 28, bought & sold it, and now it's cheap again.

Air Products & Chemicals (APD $85.30) -- I discussed APD on Jan. 31, it went up to $95, and now it's cheap again.

Microsoft (MSFT $25.06) -- I discussed MSFT on Feb. 1 and suggested buying around $24/$26. It's time now.

Walt Disney Co. (DIS $40.98) -- I discussed DIS on Feb. 2, bought and sold it after a 10% rise, and now it's cheap again.

WellPoint (WLP $66.63) -- I discussed WLP on Feb. 2; said that it looks like it's finishing up its $48-$65 trading range, and getting ready to break out. Sure enough, it rose from there, and is at a good buy price after falling a few dollars. (Always pay close attention to stocks showing strength during market downturns!)

M&T Bank Corp (MTB $86.38) -- I discussed MTB on Feb. 4; another stock showing strength in a downturn, and looking ready to break out of a trading range.

Kraft Foods Inc. (KFT $30.87) -- Feb. 9 blog post, and probably the lowest-risk stock on this list based on the current price and solid trading range.

Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO $16.32) -- Feb. 11 blog post. A screaming buy!

McDonald's (MCD $73.56) -- I discussed MCD on Feb. 18, with a trading range of $73-$80. It's a buy today.

Tiffany & Co. (TIF) $57.30 -- I discussed TIF at $61.50 on Feb. 28 and suggested buying at $57. It's a buy today.

Kroger (KR $23.63) -- I discussed KR on March 8, and it's shown no weakness in the recent market downturn. It's a buy today.

Bank of America Corp. (BAC $13.89) -- I discussed BAC on March 9 with a trading range of $13.80-$15.00. It's a buy today.

Dole Food Co. (DOLE $13.57) -- I discussed DOLE on March 14 with a trading range of $13.50-$14.80. It's a buy today.

There you go. A few stock ideas. And remember, many of these pay good dividends, so you're getting paid to wait for the stock price to go up. Happy investing!
