Salomon's Selections

July 09, 1999

Salomon Smith Barney named Allstate, Amgen and Honeywell to its "10+ Exceptional Names" list Thursday for the second straight year. The brokerage arm of Citigroup annually publishes the index of what it expects to be the top performers in the coming year. Since its inception in 1994 through the end of June, the list has outperformed the S&P 500, on average, according to Salomon. Over the last three years, stocks within the index rose more than 39% a year, on average, compared with 29% for the blue-chip Standard & Poor's 500 index. This year's selections:
