I highlighted my favorites that I will be playing the week ahead. ConocoPhillips (COP) sold off big in late January and is making a nice saucer into the dividend, and should exhibit strength on the ex-dividend date as oil prices continue to rise. Manulife (MFC) is a Canadian insurance company that will benefit from a steepening yield curve

In tech, Maxim Integrated Products (MXIM) is an analog semiconductor company that is cheap relative to the technology group. CA (CA), Microchip (MCHP) -- another analog semi name -- and cash-rich Microsoft (MSFT) all are paying attractive yields and have at least stable business momentum.
