Long-Term Picks: Banks, Integrated Oil

Credit continues to crunch. Oil has collapsed. But Jeff Mortimer recommends a bank and an oil giant. What's going on here? Hint: The chief investment officer of Charles Schwab Investment Management is thinking long-term.


"We continue to like JP Morgan (Chase) and Exxon Mobil," he told CNBC. "One financial, one integrated oil; you may look back five or 10 years from now and say you should have got them."

On the bond side, Mortimer favors corporates over Treasurys.

"The studies we have done show that as spreads come in, stocks should also do well, so I think you're getting a lower risk option in some of the corporate debt," he said.
