Top stocks in a crummy market - Sep,2011

Top stocks in a crummy market


Restaurant chains Starbucks (SBUX, Fortune 500) and Chipotle (CMG) have continued to ride a wave of momentum. And retailers ranging from bargain stores Costco (COST, Fortune 500) and Family Dollar (FDO, Fortune 500) to higher end stores like Whole Foods (WFM) and Nordstrom (JWN, Fortune 500) are doing well. So are apparel stores like Ralph Lauren (RL, Fortune 500), Limited Brands (LTD, Fortune 500) and TJX (TJX, Fortune 500).

Most of the remaining winners were a mix of companies from so-called defensive sectors: healthcare, utilities and consumer staples. Allergan (AGN, Fortune 500), Bristol-Myers Squibb, (BMY, Fortune 500) Duke Energy (DUK, Fortune 500), Southern Company (SO, Fortune 500), Kimberly-Clark (KMB, Fortune 500), Colgate-Palmolive (CL, Fortune 500) and General Mills (GIS, Fortune 500) are all holding up well this year.
