Time Warner Inc (TWX), Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (SWK): Not Another Tie! Here’s What Dads Really Want for Father’s Day

Page 1 of 2

It’s not that we don’t appreciate the thought that you put into picking out all those ties. Or that we don’t look forward to burned toast and lukewarm coffee in bed this Sunday. It’s just that when it comes to Father’s Day, what we’d really like is a gift that will remind us of you as often as possible. What better way to stay in Dad’s thoughts than by buying him a few shares of his favorite stocks?

Here Motley Fool analysts (and fathers) reveal give readers a peek at their wish list of stocks — companies that speak to their hobbies, dreams, and wishes for long-term returns.

Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX)

Comics for the kid at heart
Other than a nice nap, a cool beverage, and a few slices of REAL New York Pizza, I’d like shares of Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX) for Father’s Day, kids. You already know why: I’m a longtime comic-book collector, with about 600 comics published by Warner subsidiary DC Entertainment.

The few expensive issues I own — including a high-grade copy of Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke,” which helped inform the 2008 multiplex mega-hit The Dark Knight — can’t match Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX)’s impressive earning power. Expect it to grow with this week’s release of Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill as Superman.

There’s also TV and publishing to consider. For example, Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX). produces and distributes the CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) hit The Big Bang Theory. Investors will get a clearer understanding of how these sorts of winning properties affect earnings later this year, when Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX) spins off the Time magazine group into a separate entity.

Meanwhile, at a market cap of $53 billion, Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX) comes in at less than 50% of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS)‘s price tag. The gap won’t be that big forever, especially after this weekend, when audiences are treated to an up-close view of Superman’s full power. – Tim Beyers

Power tools for the handy pop
As much as I’d love to fill my closet with another dated paisley print tie off the discount rack, what I’d really like are some new tools in the shed and shares of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK) in my portfolio.

Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK) is the world’s largest power-tool and hand-tool manufacturer. As an acquisition machine, Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK) has gobbled up big-time tool brands such as DeWalt, Mac Tools, Bostich, Stanley, and, of course, Black & Decker.

All this buying has pushed its global market share north of 22%, and it’s rising fast.

The good news is that it doesn;t have to rely on DIY dads for sales: 30% to 40% of its traditional tool business is tied to new and existing U.S. home construction, a sector whose boom still has years to go before catching up with new household creations.

And where there’s a recovering economy, you can expect commercial construction to follow. That’s great news for Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK)’s $2.4 billion security division, whose commercial hardware and automatic doors are common features in new builds.

While Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE:SWK) may not rely on us dads to keep their business booming, we’ll do our part — a job that’s made easier if you pick up a few shares today and use the 2.5% dividend to go buy a new drill. – Austin Smith

Daredevil dad seeks thrills for the whole family
I’ve been chasing roller coasters across the country since my kids were tall enough to ride. We’ve hit more than three dozen amusement parks and ridden more than 160 different coasters along the way. I’ll always have an affinity for my hometown Florida theme parks, but I tell everyone I know to check out Holiday World in Indiana at least once.
