In the previous review, the article suggested several reasons for buying the 10 most hated stocks for the upcoming year.  The main reason was the fundamentals since 2008 posted a return of 270%.  This is mainly due to the stocks were underpriced in relation to their fundamentals, leading to herd mentality for stock price.

For 2015, the top ten most hated stocks are the following:

  • Diamond Offshore Drilling, DO
  • Transocean, RIG
  • People’s United Financial, PBCT
  • Southern Co., SO
  • Sysco, SYY
  • AGL Resources, GAS
  • Consolidated Edison, ED
  • Clorox,CLX
  • Campbell Soup, CPB
  • Assurant, AIZ

This group has a P/E ratio that is above the S&P500 average and has a sizable dividend yield.  Please also note to treat these investments like a single portfolio to lower the overall risk.

Best of luck on this strategy!!
