Use our grades as the starting point for your own research. Before buying any stock, make sure its situation hasn’t changed in an important way and that it’s right for your portfolio. While we’re pleased with our long-term track record, that doesn’t mean we can guarantee you’ll make a fortune with every A- or B-rated stock. Nonetheless, we do think such stocks deserve your attention and further research. With a little luck, the current crop of stocks will help pay for a patch of pumpkin lattes next year.

  1. Where do I find a download spreadsheet?

    • Thanks for inquiring. The spreadsheet is not available for download this year.

  2. Not to poopoo the list but last year there were a number of financials and energy companies graded fairly highly with A’s and B’s and many of their share prices took a bit of a hit this year with some still having solid yields while others had to cut their dividends. Of course with their shares taking a hit, their values are even more compelling for some. It just shows how tough it is to really predict Mr Market for short periods like over a year during turbulent times but if you’ll typically be rewarded over the longer term.

  3. Drag your cursor from the top left to the bottom right, copy the highlighted text, and you can paste it into a spreadsheet, although thanks to the formatting, you are only going to get the four columns of name, price, yield and grade.

    • Not having the list available for download is a big short coming.
