  1. I’m picking Wal-Mart (WMT). It’s the holiday season, and I still think consumers are looking for bargains (like the last 2 years).

  2. I’m choosing Honeywell (HON. People have been putting off buying appliances too long. In a tough economy, discretionary spending gets turned towards more durable essentials like appliances and away from luxuries. I’m guessing consumer spending will pick up in the run up to Christmas.
