Stock Tickers: HAL, ATI
Last year Allegheny Tech (ATI) was his stock pick of the year. It morethan doubled and was the best of all S&P 500 performers. ATI wentfrom $36.00 to $90.00. His 2007 stock of the year is not just one single stock, as investorsshould diversify. He has 3 picks: low-risk value, higher-risk growth,and speculative stocks. No one can pour more than one-fifth of theirmoney into speculative stocks.
His 3 low-risk value stocks are going to be in descending order and heis reviewing the value stocks tonight. That means you know he’ll bemaking the others Thursday and Friday.
The #3 value pick is Halliburton (HAL). He has been all over this for weeks and months, so this may not be a huge surprise. He likes that KBR spin-off, he likes buybacks, he likes valuation discounts. You know the drill.
