News on Recently Recommended Stocks

Abbott Laboratories (ABT, $50.49) -- After the recent quarterly earnings report, Morgan Stanley raised its earnings estimates for 2011 & 2012. (post from April 10)

AT&T (T, $30.68) -- Morgan Stanley modestly raised its earnings estimates for AT&T; those numbers being higher than consensus estimates. There have been several buy-low opportunities since I wrote about AT&T on Jan. 27. The upside potential is wide open. I suggest using a stop-loss order to protect profits at $30.00, and raising the stop-loss as the stock price climbs.

Borg Warner Inc. (BWA, $76.94) -- The stock is more than half-way to its short-term price target of $80-ish. (post from April 18)

Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold (FCX, $54.84) -- The stock is halfway to its short-term target of $58. (post from April 19)

General Electric (GE, $19.95) -- Earnings report came out on April 21 and the company raised the dividend. There have been several opportunities to trade GE for 10%+ profit since I posted on this stock on Jan. 24. It is still a good buy, but next time it climbs beyond $22, I'd hold it and let it ride.

Mastercard (MA $273.28) -- The stock is up $22 since I posted it on March 29. The price target is unclear. I suggest using a stop-loss order, and raising the stop-loss as the stock price continues to climb.

McDonalds (MCD, $76.91) -- Earnings report came out on April 21. Expect a short-term retracement to $80. (post from Feb. 18)

Philip Morris Int'l (PM, $67.61) -- Earnings report came out on April 21. The stock is up over $8 since I posted about it on Feb. 8. Use a stop-loss order to protect profits and let the stock continue to climb.

Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ, $36.91) -- Earnings report came out on April 21. There is still time to buy VZ. Watch for a retracement to $42. Short-term buyers should sell around $41.50. (post from Jan. 23)
