The end is nigh! The end of 2006, that is. Time for gurus from Wall Street to Mumbai to pick their 10 best stocks for 2007. Now it’s time for my anti-end-of-the-year piece. Call it “10 stock picks for investors who don’t care about the calendar.” The year-end stock-pick piece is a time-honored way to sell papers. Or, these days, to generate Internet clicks. But the project isn’t totally self-interested. An investor who can get the trends right before the year starts and then pick the right stocks to ride stands to make a handsome profit in the 12 months ahead.
