NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Why are mediocre stocks so popular when there are so many great ones out there ready to be discovered?
That is the one question I keep posing to myself day after day after looking at so many portfolios full of stocks like Cisco (CSCO), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Lowe's (LOW), Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and on and on.
They might be good companies: I shop at Lowe's. But if you are looking for growth or income or even just staying even with the market, they just are not going to do it for you anymore.
