The Sellers are Back in Control

The broad market’s weakness has finally caught up with the major indexes. Last week we saw an end to the post-September market rally, with all major indexes (and most stocks) breaking down. We never got too bullish in recent weeks because of all the warts on the rally, and now it’s time to be cautious, selling your losers and laggards and holding plenty of cash.  

From here, we’re open to any scenario, ranging from yet another quick snapback to a prolonged downtrend after months of topping action. Just following the evidence, we’re moving our Market Monitor down to the lower end of neutral.

This week’s list reveals that despite the broad market implosion, there are still many resilient stocks; you could nibble on one or two or just add them to your watch list. Our Top Pick is a stock that looks to be in a bull market of its own.

This is an excerpt from Cabot Top Ten Trader, which features the best trades to make every week.  Designed for experienced investors who want even more great growth stock ideas, this advisory recommends the best 10 stocks each month for short-term investment by aggressive growth investors.
