TravelZoo (TZOO) – Best Stocks 2012 – TravelZoo Inc. (TZOO) is one of my top stocks for 2012.  Why do I think TZOO is a good stock into 2012?  First off, Travelzoo has recently dropped from $90 all the way down to $21 on a light earnings miss due to expenses.  TravelZoo is currently trading in the mid 20’s, down from around $35 a month ago. 

TravelZoo has recently ramped up their new business called Local Deals ( )  TravelZoo is focusing on high quality deals vs saving $5 off $10 worth of hot dogs.  A recent deal from TravelZoo provided a $120 golf fee at a major golf course in New York City for $59 including the cart.  This is a high quality deal.  Another deal in Chicago helped me save $57 off a wonderful Mexican dinner.  TravelZoo is trying to create 2 new deals per week in each of their current markets as well as new markets they haven’t created yet.  The growth protential is staggering and these deals are selling out fast.  The response from this new local deals business has been huge.  I think of it as the next Groupon but better because of the quality of the deals.  TravelZoo also has excellent travel deals as well as the Top 20 deals they publish every week.  ( ). is getting ready to become profitable which will help boost earnings for the company in the future. 

TravelZoo is my stock pick for 2012 and I feel the stock can rally into the high $30’s.  This would represent a 30-40% gain.  Problems in Europe have caused me to tone down my expectations a bit.  TZOO is a buy between $17-$21 if we see a major sell off.

Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. (PZG) – Gold Stocks 2012 – Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. (PZG) is my Top Gold Stock Pick for 2012.  PZG stock is currently trading at $2.40 in September 2011 which offers a great entry point if you are looking for a more speculative stock for 2012.  Why do I call PZG a stock pick for 2012? 

Paramount Gold and Silver (PZG) has intersected significant gold and silver mineralization while drilling the Don Ese target at its wholly owned San Miguel project in the Sierra Madres of Chihuahua, Mexico.  The first hole into the blind target returned 16 metres averaging 2.11 grams gold and 90 grams silver per tonne, starting from 481 metres down-hole. The 16-metre section includes a higher-grade 7.6 metres of 4.25 grams gold and 133 grams silver.  Stepping out along strike, Paramount has encountered similar grades and thicknesses in five of the first six holes drilled. The steeply-dipping mineralized structural zone that hosts the Don Ese vein has been traced for a strike length of 550 metres, with remarkable grade continuity. It runs north-northwest and remains open along dip and along strike for at least another 200 metres before it butts up both to the north and south against the neighbouring mine property of Coeur d’Alene Mines (CDE).

This is a great news and I think the company will start mining this gold discovery in 2012.  I am giving PZG a $4 price target for 2012 but even a rally back into the $3’s will treat you well.

Apple Inc. (AAPL) – Technology Stocks –  Apple (AAPL) is another one of my stocks picks for 2012.  Recently, AAPL stock hit $363 and rallied up near $380.  AAPL should have another incredible year of blow out earnings.  I am giving AAPL a price target of $450 in 2012.  Buy AAPL stock on any major decline below $360.
