6 Super Bowl Stocks the Pros Want to Win

NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- As Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers fans are busy rooting for their respective team's victory in Sunday's Super Bowl, analysts and fund managers are busy making their Super Bowl stock predictions.

Action Alerts PLUS' Stephanie Link recently recommended Coca-Cola ( KO), which she said she likes because after its "fabulous year" in 2010, it's lagged, presenting a "great opportunity." She said it might be down, but "there's no reason for it being down" and mentioned catalysts such as a potential dividend increase on the horizon.

Louis Navellier of InvestorPlace included Dr Pepper Snapple ( DPS), Gannett ( GCI) and Coke on his list of five Super Bowl stocks that are already doing well and could get a boost from the game.

As for the Super Bowl's effect on the stock market at large, general consensus seems to be that no matter who wins the big games, it's a win-win for stocks. Robert Holmes makes a case for a Steelers win being best for the bulls, based on data from Capital IQ.
