Technical analysis suggests a few broken stocks are ready to make gains, Oppenheimer Chief Market Technician Carter Worth said Wednesday.

On "Fast Money," Worth showed charts of stock prices from Pitney Bowes and Hewlett-Packard, representing what appeared to be a bottoming.

"The bottoming action is someone buying, whether it's a short who's covering or a new long who sees deep value, but that's what you want," he said.

"You want that constructive healing kind of action, and they all show that circumstance."

Worth also said that when a stock's really going out of business, the share price doesn't act in this manner.
