As part of our tour of the United States of Stocks, we took at closer look at publicly traded companies based in northeastern states. Our list of nine companies — one from each state in the Northeast — includes a number of pharmaceutical firms as well a toolmaker that has been paying dividends for 140 years.
A word of caution: Since we picked a single stock from each state, and choices in some states are sparse, a few of these stocks are best suited to investors comfortable with a higher degree of risk. This is not a selection of our favorite stocks in the entire region, in other words. Take a look at the best stocks in the Northeast to buy now.
