Season of Stock Predictions

Jim Cramer's Top Dow Picks for 2011


I expect the Dow to hit 13,365 next year-- a 16% gain from current levels and a bountiful return -- based on a prognostication of the performance of the individual members of the venerable index. Although I am a bottoms up guy, as a backdrop I am presuming a resumption of decent U.S. growth courtesy of the Federal Reserve -- call it 3% to 4% -- continued worldwide growth, a stable-to-slight decline in the dollar and a decent increase in interest rates (30-year Treasury bond going to 4.8%) as befitting a return to economic health.

Comment: Way too optimistic (my view). Cramer looks at each of the Dow components

Comment: Citigroup is # 1. I would pass on every one on this list
