Irish Shares for 2010

With the New Year well under way the Paddy Power dart throwing 'Monkey' took a stab at picking some Irish stocks for 2010, as did a few Homo Sapiens. Article featured in the Sunday Independent on December 27th.

The Monkey picks for 2010 (chart comments were not those of the monkey!):

Aer Lingus


Paddy Power

Smurfit Kappa

The stock pickers of the human variety had plumped for the following (chart comments are independent of their picks):

Amanda Brunker (Author) is gunning for Petroceltic (PCI), Kenmare (KMR), and Paddy Power (PLS). There were two non-Irish picks: Tesco (TSCO) and Google (GOOG). Expectation for ISEQ at end of year: 3,300

Fergus Murphy (ESB) is looking to C&C (CCY), CRH (CRG), CPL Resources (DQ5), FBD Holdings (EG7), Irish Continental (IR5A), and Smurfit Kappa (SK3). Expectation for ISEQ at end of year: 3,500

Tom McGurk (4 FM) has the following on watch for 2010: Paddy Power (PLS), Ryanair (RYA), FBD (EG7), Smurfit Kappa (SK3), Kerry Group (KRZ) and Greencore (GCG). Expectation for ISEQ at end of year: 2,985.

Brenda Shanahan ('The Apprentice') has gone for Allied Irish Banks (AIB), Paddy Power (PLS), C&C, Ryanair (RYA), Aryzta (YZA), and Kerry Group (KRZ).

Finally, Feargal Quinn (Senator), has opted for CPL Resources (DQ5), Merrion Pharma (3MP), Worldspreads (WSPR), Bank of Ireland (BKIR), Irish Contentinal Group (IR5A) and C&C. Expectation for ISEQ at end of year: 4,500.

So, in summary, we have four picks out of six for Paddy Power (PLS) - although how random the Paddy Power Monkey was in 'picking' this is up for debate! Three picks for Ryanair (RYA), C&C, and Smurfit Kappa (SK3). With a couple of picks for Kerry Group (KRZ), Irish Continental (IR5A), and CPL Resources (DQ5).

How will all of this playout in 2010?
