Stocks With Snap Back Potential

Tuesday, 22 Jan 2008 | 3:54 PM ET

After months of accurately calling for declines Carter Worth, Chief Market Technician at Oppenheimer is now seeing a bounce.

You're buying?

You can still buy a bear market rally, explains Worth on CNBC's "Closing Bell." Is this a bounce that lasts 4 hours or 4 days – nobody knows. What I do know is you don’t sell on a day like today (Tuesday).

How do you play it?

Avoid stocks with established downtrends (typically financials and retailers) and instead seek out strong stocks in well defined uptrends that have sold off sharply and have snap back potential, Worth says.

Specifically, I recommend looking at industrial names such as Jacob Engineering (JEC) and Chicago Bridge (CBI) as well as Apache (APA) in the energy sector. We’re also keeping an eye on McDonald’s (MCD) in the consumer space and Google (GOOG), Research In Motion (RIMM) and Apple (AAPL) in tech.
