12 Strong Technical Stocks for 2012

Procter and Gamble (PG - Get Report) is next, and we like this name. This is a solid chart and a good big cap Dow 30 name as well. Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) is Barron's next choice and we like the chart -- and energy is an overweight for us currently.

Sanofi ADS (SNY) is a drug but is also European, and while this name could do well and we would consider purchase, we like American names such as Eli Lilly (LLY - Get Report) better. We would also include a bit of iShares DJ Pharmaceuticals (IHE) as it is hitting new highs and is a way to invest in a sector that should outperform next year.

Seagate Technology (STX - Get Report), has positive moving averages, but the stochastic pattern is a little bit negative and we would avoid the name. On the other hand, Vodafone (VOD) is an attractive chart in a defensive sector and may be a way to have some European exposure that will outperform if Europe trades badly next year.

We hope this helps for putting together some ideas for 2012. Expect to see our thoughts on what we can expect in 2012 in the weeks ahead.
