James Glassman's 10 Stock Picks for 2018

Columnist James K. Glassman consults with experts from top funds and firms to identify 10 stocks to that should outperform the S&P 500.

My 10 choices for 2017 beat their benchmark by the widest margin since 1993, when I began this annual exercise. Two stocks more than doubled. There were eight winners, two losers and a whopping average total return (price increase plus dividends) of 43.5%, compared with 23.6% for Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index. With no guarantee that my winning ways will persist—and a good chance that next year my picks will revert to the mean—here is the 2018 list, chosen, as usual, from the selections of experts, with a stock of my choosing thrown in. Returns and other data are as of October 31. I own none of the 2018 recommendations.
