One of the better run banks in the US. Have just taken over MBNA which is one of the largest credit card issuers in North America. This is a growth area which is what banks are looking for. A very logical buy.

If you are looking at major chemicals, Dow Chemical (DOW-N) and Lyondell Chemical (LYO-N) would both be good. Lyondell is cheap, good dividend and has growth ahead of it.

Was a darling stock and fell out of favour because they had a problem with enough bottling capacity in key markets and were also hurt by rising material costs, especially aluminim and plastics. They have addressed their problems with bottling. If you're a long term investor, this might be a good time to be looking at this one.

Not a good buying opportunity at this level or anywhere near this level. The company is still in disarray with the recent management changes. The business they're in is highly competitive. Not as leading edge as they had been and they're losing market share.

(A Top Pick May 17/05. Up 11.5%.) Pleased that it's up, but not sure why. Sold one of its major divisions, took in a lot of cash and haven't announced how they are going to redeploy that.
