2 Energetic Stocks In This Tired Market

Thursday, 8 Apr 2010 | 5:48 PM ET

A growing number of investors are starting to worry that the rally is getting tired.

Oppenheimer's Carter Worth is among them. On Thursday’s Halftime Report, Worth – who’s been mostly bullish – raised the white flag.

”The advance we’ve enjoyed from the February 5th low is reaching the outer limits of how far it can go and how steep it can go before there’s profit taking,” he said.

At best he expects the market to trade sideways for a while.

Under the Radar Stocks
New names that you need to know about, with Hillary Kramer, A&G Capital chef market strategist.

Hillary Kramer, A&G Capital chief market strategist thinks the situation looks a little worse. She says expect a 7-10% pullback in the market and expect it to begin this month.

Even Jon Najarian told us on the Halftime Report, we need absolutely exceptional results during earnings season, or I think we pull back.

Single Stock Stories

Does that mean you can only trade from the short side? Absolutely not!. There’s plenty of opportunity on the long side. You just have to know where to look.

"The trick is to find undervalued stocks in a market that’s over extended like this one is," explains, says Hilary Kramer.

She brought two names to the Fast Money desk: They follow:


Evercore Partners (EVR)

--Boutique investment bank

--BlackRock co-rounder Ralph Schlosstein is CEO

--Shares up approx. 100% over the past 1 year

I love this company, says Kramer. They’ve been ranked #1 in M&A among the boutique investment banks. And M&A is up 12% this year. Plus they’re growing asset management and I like the valuation. Easily it could go to $40.

GeoEye (GEOY)

--Satellite imagery provider

--U.S. Government a major customer

--Shares up approx. 22% over the past 1 year

I love this as a defense play, says Kramer. Their equipment can see a postage stamp in a cave in Afghanistan. And they’ve showed 80% revenue growth quarter over quarter. There was a glitch in the satellite and the stock sold off so this is a good entry point. The company could easily be a takeover target.

Earlier in the week Kramer brought us two more picks.
