At the Motley Fool our goal is to produce strong absolute and relative returns in our portfolio by focusing on companies that share five key characteristics: (1) indomitable business models with competitive moats; (2) proactive management teams who are using the recession as an opportunity to cut costs, grab market share, and emerge stronger; (3) solid balance sheets and profitability; (4) "naturally" recurring revenue, adding stability to the business; and (5) unfairly cheap stocks. In many cases our stocks are also early beneficiaries of government stimulus efforts to revive the economy by directing money to major infrastructure projects. Here are five we're buying that fit the bill.
