After taking a close look at the latest data on institutional buying pressure and each company’s fundamental health, I decided to revise my Portfolio Grader recommendations for many of my big blue-chip stocks.

While some stocks like Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) are being downgraded, others are looking better than before thanks to buying pressure and solid fundamentals.

Chances are that you have at least one of these blue-chip stocks in your portfolio, and if you don’t, now you should. So, you may want to give this list of stocks to buy a skim and act accordingly.

Here are 21 blue-chip stocks that have been upgraded from “hold” rankings to “buy” rankings:
