No one wants to lose money to be sure, but burying it in a coffee can does not insulate it from the ravages of inflation. The only option available to preserve and grow wealth is to invest it. While there is a universe of investment options out there (some really out there), my passion is the equities market.

I selected U.S. large caps that pay a dividend and have an average daily trading volume in excess of 1 million shares. In terms of fundamentals, I screened for price/earnings, past 5 year sales growth, insider transactions, current ratio, institutional ownership, price/book and return on assets. The screen resulted in 7 stocks, and, to avoid duplicity of sectors, I reduced that number to the 5 companies we will analyze here today. These are the key inflation-proof stocks to buy now.

1. Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM)
2. Intel Corporation (INTC)
3. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
4. Nucor Corporation (NUE)
5. Walgreen Co. (WAG)
