Stock picks for August 27, 2013

Occasionally I will write posts about stock picks that I think are great opportunities to earn money in the short-run and/or are good stocks to buy a low prices.

My first stock for today is Metlife Inc. (MET). Metlife is a stock that fell $2.07 and  -4.32% today to $45.85. Analysts still have them ranked as a strong buy, I wouldn’t worry about the stock going down too much more. Look at Metlife as an opportunity to make a short-term gain as their prices bounce back.

Discover (DFS) fell $1.98 and -4.03% to $47.21 one day after Visa took a similar tumble. The US housing and jobs markets have been improving, which have spurred an increase in consumer spending. Consumers are going to continue to use credit cards as spending continues to climb upwards.
