NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- My suggested allocation to stocks has been at a maximum of 50% focusing on utilities, brand name retailers and the buy-rated stocks in the Dow industrial average. The 15 buy-rated names in the Dow 30 provide this diversification. Among the 15 are three retail-wholesale stocks, two consumer staples stocks, four medical stocks, three multi-sector conglomerates, two utilities and one in the computer & technology sector.On March 25 I wrote, 9 Consumer Staples Stocks at Risk of Reversion which included the buy-rated names in the Dow 30. On March 26 I wrote, Allocate U.S. Holdings to 14 Top Dow Stocks and since then three of the computer and technology stocks profiled in this post are now rated hold not buy.
