— The Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced Caterpillar Inc,. (NYSE: CAT) as its January 2011 “Stock to Study” and Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK) as its January 2011 “Undervalued Stock” for investors’ informational and educational use.
"The committee chose Caterpillar because it believes the company will benefit from a continued boom in constructed related to commodities and a weaker dollar," said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. "For the Undervalued selection, the committee chose Merck because it offers an attractive dividend coupled with solid business prospects over the next couple of years."
