Read the most recent Top 500 American stock picks list for 2012.

The American market is waking up, and our U.S. All-Stars (stocks which earned either an A or a B for both their Value and Growth grade) delivered massive gains. Last year’s picks are up by 19.4%, beating the S&P 500 by 6.5 percentage points. Time to meet the new team.

As in past years, we focused on the 500 largest public companies in the U.S. based on revenues. We rated each stock for its growth appeal and gave the fastest risers an A, the next best a B, and so on, all the way down to an F for the stocks stuck in a rut.

We also graded each stock based on its bargain appeal as a value stock. The top bargains were given As, while overpriced players were sent home with Fs.

As always, before rushing out to buy any stocks, do your own diligence. Please use our grades as a starting point for your own research, and remember that stock screens have their limitations.

  17. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
