5 Classic American Companies That Have Made Our Readers Rich

No. 1: Boeing (NYSE: BA)

"This stock is one that keeps coming back again and again, even when investors lose faith," said Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon about Boeing back in February. "It's just like Rocky."

You see, Bill is our champion stock picker here at Money Morning - and for good reason.

To date, Bill has delivered gains of up to 500% and counting to his subscribers.

Bill initially recommended the aerospace and defense technology company in 2011, and the stock has since grown from $61.92 to $238 - a 294% increase!

Add the $17.88 in dividends, and now you're talking about a total return of 323%.

Even more, Boeing has been the best-performing stock in the Dow so far this year, gaining 55.9%.


And it still has room to run...

"The long-term view for Boeing is still pretty doggone good," says Bill.

This next stock is another huge win from Bill - one that he says is the "future of drone technology."

No. 2: Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT)

One of our greatest American stock picks came from Bill back in March 2016.

Bill loves investing in America's future. That's why he recommended Lockheed Martin last year to his Private Briefing subscribers.

"Lockheed's innovation brings the [drone] technology one step closer to full mainstream adaptation," he said when suggesting readers buy up shares in LMT.

Back then, LMT was trading at $218.00.

And again, on July 21, he reminded readers to keep an eye on Lockheed.

It's now sitting at $293.23 - a nice 40% gain.

No. 3: Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE)

"Deere & Co. has been on a massive 40%, 12-month run, right alongside a strengthening overall global economy," said Money Morning Quantitative Specialist Chris Johnson to readers on February 15.

Chris recommended investors buy stock in the heavy machinery giant at a time when most analysts didn't even have Deere on their radar.

"It's not a bad time to produce the equipment used to 'rebuild America.' The momentum is very strong here," said Chris.

Indeed, DE stock is up 15% since Chris first mentioned it - from $108 in February to over $128 today (Aug. 3).

"There is an iron-strong fundamental backdrop for Deere and other industrials right now," said Chris.

While Chris' short-term play on DE has ended, this next stock is poised to soar...

No. 4: Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN)

Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald is an expert at identifying undervalued stocks that most investors miss.

That's why he recommended Raytheon Co., an American defense firm, to his Money Map Report subscribers back in 2011.

You see, Keith sees Raytheon as much more than just an electronics or weapons company. He sees it as a cybersecurity company.

"What really excites me, though, is something that very few analysts have focused on yet," said Keith. "Raytheon is leading the charge in teaching computers to defend themselves."

And he was right.

In 2016, Raytheon pivoted to commercial cybersecurity and has since launched its own cyber unit, Raytheon Cyber.

Readers who listened to Keith back in 2011 are sitting on a nice 276% gain right now. And many readers are still reaping the benefits of this American classic.

No. 5: American Water Works Company Inc. (NYSE: AWK)

Keith recommended American Water Works to his Money Map Report subscribers back in November 2011.

And again, in October 2016, Keith shared his recommendation with Money Morning readers.

"AWK is the dominant company with first-rate assets in a crucial industry, making this water play a great cornerstone holding for your portfolio," he told his readers.

AWK was trading at $31.16 at the time of Keith's recommendation. It's now trading at $81.93 - a hearty 162.93% increase.

AWK is part of what Keith calls the "Unstoppable Trends." These are backed by trillions of dollars that Washington cannot derail, the Fed cannot meddle with, and Wall Street cannot hijack.

"You cannot live without water for more than 72 hours," said Keith. "The company is growing by leaps and bounds and, by the way, pays a healthy dividend of 2%, too."

"American Water Works makes 'must-have' products. So it's logical that they're going to attract gobs of capital going forward," said Keith. "Sure, they're going to fluctuate, but overall the net flow is to them."

The Gains Keep Coming

Keith has a strategy for his subscribers that sets them up for twice the profit potential of the "average" investor.

Subscribers who have been following along with his recommendations are racking up wins at a dizzying pace.

Nine gains in one week alone... 27 triple-digit gains this year... 41 triple-digit wins in the last 12 months...
