Changes to the Top Ten List
August 15th 2013: With the stock market rocketing over the last few years, an investor has to be far more cautious and conservative with their picks. Diversity is the key, but it's becoming even more important to invest in companies that are in stable, long term businesses. Using those insights, we constructed diverse portfolio that lowers risk, but also offers many opportunities to profit. Or course, be careful with any investment choices, because any one investment will have a high probability of going down, whereas a portfolio of great stocks, funds and ETFs are more likely to lower risk and outperform the stock market.
June 7th 2011 Update: we updated all of our analysis. Upon reviewing our top ten selections, we removed several stocks that appreciated substantially in value. Global Crossing (GLBC) increased by 130% in less than two months just around the time we posted it on our list. For those luck enough to buy this stock, congratulations! PepsiCo (PEP) and Millicom (MICC) are still undervalued, but they don't have enough investment potential to stay on our list. China Mobile (CHL) is overvalued, but until the newest financial statements came out, we could not make a short term calculation of their value. China Mobile chart points downward; WikiWealth's analysis says that trend will continue. Similarly, Aes Corp (AES) is overvalued after WikiWealth set a minimum discount rate for the discounted cash flow analysis. AES was the biggest casualty of that change, but our investors should benefit from much more conservative analysis. AmeriGas Partners (APU) Utility and Nisource (NI) Utility are still undervalued, but they are less so after WikiWealth made the conservative changes to the overall analysis. All in all, there were many changes to the top ten list, but all the changes help to strength the analysis.
Be very careful when investing in the next top ten buy list, because many of the stocks are foreign. WikiWealth constructs portfolios for the long term, only. Foreign stocks will be volatile, especially when faced with a potential global recession. Over the long term, these are great companies. Do your own research before investing.

Disclaimer: WikiWealth does not like ranking or picking stocks, because investors unfairly assume that if WikiWealth's community of investors picked a #1 stock or fund, it should be the greatest stock or fund of all time. Undervalued investments simply trade below their fair value. It does not mean an undervalued investment will reach it's fair value. When investors purchase good investments, they tend to rise over time. WikiWealth finds good investments. Importantly, WikiWealth does not predict time frames, because prices can change quickly.
