Markets to Sell Off if Dow Breaks This Level: Pro

Thursday, 26 Aug 2010 | 11:51 AM ET

Stocks have fallen almost 4 percent this month after a 7-percent gain in July. So what’s next and how do investors play it?

How Now Dow?
Playing the blue chips, with Charles Carlson, CEO of Horizon Investment Services.

Charles Carlson, CEO and portfolio manager of Horizon Investment Services, shared his best plays.

“Since April, both the Dow Jones Industrial Averageand the Dow Jones Transportsmapped out a series of lower highs and lower lows—and that’s bearish under the Dow theory,” Carlson told CNBC.

“Everyone’s been watching the July lows; and the Dow that’s 9,686; and the industrials and the transports that are 3,906—those are the key points.”

Carlson said if the industrial average and the transports close below the respective levels, then investors should brace for a further market selloff.

He expects certain stocks to move.

Carlson’s Dow Picks:

Intel

IBM

Microsoft

Travelers

“We think there’s going to be plenty of excitement in these stocks,” Carlson explained.
