James Glassman’s Top Stock Picks for 2020

Nvidia may be the best artificial intelligence play. The stock has bounced off its June low but still offers excellent value.

My annual stock choices beat Standard & Poor's 500-stock index for the fourth year in a row in 2019, and the margin was pretty spectacular, if I do say so myself. For the 12 months ending October 31, 2019, my picks returned, on average, 30.0%, compared with 14.3% for the S&P. But as I reminded readers last year, don't get too excited about my forecasting ability. No one beats the market consistently.
