MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Jan. 3, 2014 — The Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced Starbucks Corporation (NDQ: SBUX) as its March 2014 “Stock to Study” and International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE: IBM) as its March 2014 “Undervalued Stock” for investors’ informational and educational use.
“The committee chose Starbucks based on the opportunities for future growth, ability to control quality and strong management,” said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. “For the Undervalued selection, the committee cited IBM’s relatively low current valuation and potential for turnaround efforts to begin taking hold in the coming quarters.” Check BetterInvesting’s March issue for more details about these selections.
