This is the first of three Barron’s Roundtable articles featuring some of the best and brightest in the investment industry. In general, these experts see more uncertainty in 2009, but think there are ample opportunities for good stock-picking strategies. Writes Barron’s Lauren R. Rublen, “The [roundtable] was rife with history lessons and warnings — and optimism, too, that those who find bargains amid the rubble will reap rich rewards. Or, as [panelist] Meryl Witmer nicely put it, ‘It is an exciting time to be a stockpicker.'”
By clicking on the image below, you can see our summary of the Roundtable members’ thoughts and stock recommendations. We will continue to update the chart once the second and third articles are published.
