Some people pick stocks on the news. Some people pick stocks on hunches. MKM Partners' chief market technician Katie Stockton relies on the charts. They can point an investor toward some counter-intuitive moves. For example, her first pick mixes real estate with technology.
The pick is Digital Realty.
"Technology has proven to have very strong positive relative strength," she said. "We've also seen signs of life in the REIT sector, so, to combine those two sectors, the potential there, we look at Digital Realty."
Runner-up on her list is Procter & Gamble.
