Jodi - here is what I have from college notes - are you cool with this definition - A blue chip is stock available from a large, national or international company that has solid track record of earnings that are stable and/or dividend growth that is solid and stable with a reputation of having a high quality management team and/or products.

The company's reputation and standards are everything when it comes to attracting investors.
