Chartology: Situation Capitulation

The market is grossly undervalued and this is a good time to be aggressive in equities, according to Bill Smith, president, CEO and senior portfolio manager at SAM Advisors.

He tells CNBC that companies such as Textron are trading at ridiculously low multiples and he’s a buyer. But he's an optimist, no doubt.

We couldn’t help but wonder, is Smith a little ahead of himself? Certainly, there are still liquidity problems out there. Or is he spot on? Find out what the charts suggest!


According to Oppenheimer chief market technician Carter Worth this chart as well as those of MetLife and AK Steel demonstrate key technical reversals. He interprets the patterns as classic signs of capitulation. Specifically, he says massive volume in over-sold names suggest we have touched a bottom.

Worth sees similar patterns in the S&P and says "the market has likely bottomed."

If you watch the show regularly you know that Worth has been negative on stocks for quite some time so this kind of analysis is rather surprising. And there's more too, so hold your hats.

According to Worth, "everyone who had to sell has probably sold." He tell us now is the time to start buying stocks becuse he expects an overall 18% move to the upside. Even after Monday's giant rally Worth would still be a buyer. "The place to be is energy,materials and industrials," he concludes.

Maybe it really is darkest before the dawn.
