10 Best Dow Stocks Since March 2009 Low

BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Those who claim you can't make money in blue-chip dividend stocks should take a look at the following 10 Dow components. They've at least doubled since the March 2009 low, which was two years ago this week. Although the mega-cap index has lagged the S&P 500 and Nasdaq since then, several companies have surged. Several may still outperform in 2011. Below, they are ordered by performance since the low, from great to best.

10. JPMorgan (JPM - Get Report) is a financial company, with retail-, commercial- and investment-banking units.

JPMorgan's stock has doubled since the March 2009 low. It is up 8.8% in 12 months and 15% in three. JPMorgan currently ranks as analysts' favorite Dow stock, based on aggregate ratings. Currently, 28, or 85%, of the analysts in coverage rate its stock "buy" and five rate it "hold." None rank it "sell." Oppenheimer forecasts a rise of 35% to $61. Nomura predicts a gain of 11% to $50. The stock trades at a trailing earnings multiple of 12, a forward earnings multiple of 8.2 and a sales multiple of 1.5, 16%, 26% and 14% peer discounts. JPMorgan's adjusted fourth-quarter earnings surged 84% to $1.12, beating researchers' consensus estimate by 12%. The company's quarterly revenue grew 23%.
