I have been tracking the ratings in the DowJones Industrial Average stating that the buy rated names are candidates for your allocations to the long side of the stock market. Today the number of stocks rated buy fell to 13 as General Electric (GE) and Intel (INTC) have been downgraded to hold.

At the time of publication the author held no positions in any of the stocks mentioned.
