Amid a dense fog of uncertainty, an aging bull will have to find its footing in 2017. Rarely has the way forward been so obscured by the murky policies of a new political regime, as well as by questions about economic growth, monetary policy and the animal spirits—or lack thereof—of America’s corporate chieftains.

With change afoot, along with an essentially sound economy, you’ll do best by favoring stocks over bonds, zeroing in on companies with strong long-term growth trends and rising dividends, and by finding sectors that will prosper with Donald Trump in the White House.

Here are 27 stock picks that Kiplinger's investing editors Daren Fonda and Anne Kates Smith, as well as columnist James K. Glassman, see offering promise in the year ahead.

Stocks are in alphabetic order. Share prices and other data are as of December 8, 2016.
