Update: Value Stock Picks for the Week of 7/16/12-7/20/12

Posted on the 20 July 2012 by Valuestockinvestingnotebook @ValueStockNtbk

Welcome back to the Value Stock Investing Notebook! Thank you stopping by and supporting the idea of investing in dividend paying stocks for the long term. I wanted to recap last week's picks for you since it is important to review all investments on a weekly, if not daily, basis.

It was a 8 for 20 week. 40of my picks increased in value. A 15% gain from last week's 25% increase. We had a slight increase in successful picks this week and did find some value. Pentair, Inc.(NYSE:PNR) and Synageva BioPharma Corp(NASDAQ:GEVA) increased in value. If you invested $2,000 on 7/16/12 into GEVA, you would have gained $105.66 as of 7/20/12. A sweet profit, all in a week's worth.
When investing in value stocks you should try to hold on for at least a quarter. I like companies such as Checkpoint Systems, Inc.(NYSE:CKP) andApplied Materials, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMAT) because they are currently undervalued. Let these companies work hard for you so you can maximize your profits.
Until next time friends, keep investing as much as you can on a weekly basis. Perform your due diligence and invest in companies that you feel comfortable with. Do not risk your hard earned dollars by investing in unknown, unreliable companies.
Feel free to watch the great videos below, featuring some of this week's winners!
