Motorola Solutions Inc (MSI), Norfolk Southern Corp. (NSC): Make Money in Buyback Achievers the Easy Way

Other companies didn’t do as well last year but could see their fortunes change in the coming years. Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW), for example, sank 7%, yielding 2.8%. The company, recently upgraded by the folks at Bernstein, is producing glass for LCD displays and smartphones and fiber for telecom networks, among other things. Demand for its Gorilla Glass is strong, generating more than $1 billion in 2012 revenue, and its flexible new Willow Glass is promising, too — and might end up in Apple’s new iWatch. There’s a solid case to be made that the stock is attractively priced at recent levels and a good long-term investment.
