News Corp. (NWSA - Get Report) is a media conglomerate run by Rupert Murdoch. Its empire spans the globe and includes cable-TV programming, where it gets half of its revenue. Businesses include the Fox broadcast network in the U.S. and 27 local TV stations, as well as an international direct-broadcast satellite division. The company also publishes newspapers in Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Church said that "despite massive negative headlines" hurting the stock due to a still-unfolding newspaper telephone snooping scandal in England, "there's tremendous asset value underneath this stock. It's a classic value stock and will continue to realize significant appreciation in the next 12 months."

Its shares are up 23% this year and have a three-year average annual return of 30%, resulting in a market value of $45 billion. Its shares carry a projected dividend yield of 1.07%.






FMC Corp. (FMC - Get Report) makes a range of chemicals, including phosphates and soda ash, and they can be used as food additives, in agricultural pesticides and pharmaceuticals.

Church says the company's manufacture of high-grade lithium is a growing part of its business. The chemical is used in batteries that can be used to power everything from a mobile phone or other communication device to electric cars, which provides "high potential for growth," Church says.

FMC's shares are up 6% this year and over 10 years have an average annual return of 19.5%.
