Savvy investors realize that blue chip investments are companies that are better capitalized and positioned to succeed in the changing marketplace where "bricks and clicks" alike are required. Among the best of the best, companies chosen by Walden for the previous edition have led the market indicators: the average return of his top five picks was 30.4% compared to -7.2% for the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the same one-year period.

The 100 Best Stocks to Own in America goes far beyond impressive figures for one year. Since its first edition in 1989, Walden's guide to stocks poised for superior long-term growth has not let investors down. In fact, hundreds of thousands of investors have used this information to create powerful portfolios. Many buy each edition of the book to see how the lists of companies have changed over time. What hasn't changed are the rigorous criteria for inclusion: only the strongest companies make the grade. Companies are selected on the basis of: earnings growth, stock growth, dividend growth, dividend yield, consistency, shareholder perks.

Walden shares inside stories and insights about investing along with contact information, details about the company, and explanation of the results. Results are illustrated for each company in a table of points, at-a-glance results, and a bar chart of stock growth. Listings by industry and state make this book an easy-to-use reference.
