Praxair, Inc. (PX) rated Hold

Posted on: Friday,  Jan 18, 2008  2:28 AM ET by Zacks Top 10 Stocks of 2007

It was done almost without effort. A fortunate few used the new “buy-and-hold” Zacks
Top 10 Stocks service to blow away the market.

Remarkably, and with little fanfare, the 2007 Top 10 picks beat the S&P 500 by more than 8 times, +37.7% to +4.5%.
