ConocoPhillips, Freeport-McMoRan Selected as Featured Stocks
On Friday the Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) as its July 2012 “Stock to Study” and Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE: FCX) as its July 2012 “Undervalued Stock” for investors’ informational and educational use.
“The committee chose ConocoPhillips because of potential improvements over the long term in the natural gas market, an important segment for the company,” said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. “For the Undervalued selection, the committee noted that Freeport-McMoRan is a low market valuation and would benefit from any increases in copper prices caused by growing industrial production in China and India.” Check the BetterInvesting website in June for more details about these selections.
Committee members are Robert M. Bilkie, Jr., CFA; Daniel J. Boyle, CFA; Philip S. Dano, CFA; Donald E. Danko, CFA; Maury Elvekrog, CFA; Walter J. Kirchberger, CFA; Marisa Lenhard, CFA; and Paul McVey, CFA.
As stated, the BetterInvesting committee’s Stock to Study and Undervalued Stock choices are for the informational and educational uses of investors and are not intended as investment recommendations.
