Friday, April 12, 2013

At StateoftheMarkets.com, we strive to "own the best and ignore the rest" in our equity portfolios. Toward this end, each day we search our database for a "top stock" (a top rated company in terms of earnings strength as well as company and industry performance) that presents a strong technical "set up" and a good entry point.

In short, when our equity team is looking to add a stock to one of our portfolios, the "bull's eye" stock shown below is generally their first choice.

Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc RHP Specialized REITs 9.3 +12.67% $43.52

Why We Like The Stock:

Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc (RHP) is our most compelling buy today due to the fact that it is a top rated stock (in terms of earnings strength and company/industry performance) in a strong sub-industry. Specialized REITS have been on fire this year, as evidenced by rocket ships like EPR Properties (EPR), RLJ Lodging Trust (RLJ ), and Medical Properties Trust (MPW). RHP isn't quite as straight up as these charts, though its more "under control" uptrend makes it a less risky pick. The stock has been trending higher since November of 2012, making higher highs and higher lows along the way. Currently, the stock has pulled back a modest amount and is consolidating above its 50-day moving average. RHP doesn't move with the market (it's up +0.5% today while the S&P 500 is currently -0.5%), though it has had plenty of upward thrust so far this year. We like this Specialized REIT above its April 5 opening price for a run up to the $48 range.
We Would Be Buyers:

At the current price (~$44.90), or on a pullback to the 50-day moving average at $44.25.
