How to Play These Stocks Off 3-Year Lows

Of the biggest movers off three-year lows, a few stocks still showed potential, according to a leading technical analyst.

Oppenheimer’s Carter Worth on Thursday called out Wyndham Resorts.

“This is literally the No. 1 performing stock off the low three years out in the entire S&P,” he said on “Fast Money.”

But the stock chart appears to have run out of steam, closing at $43.75.

“We would fade it. Overdone. Take profits. Write calls against it. Do something,” he said.

The second biggest winner, Genworth Financial, saw a stock price up tenfold over the past three years.

“By all accounts this is a bearish-to-bullish reversal – a sick, laggard-type stock that is in the throes of bottoming out,” Worth said. “In this case we would stay long or get long.”

A more defensive stock, CBS, has returned to its May 2011 highs.

“We would play for $34, $35,” he said.

Worth also looked at the biggest loser, Dean Foods.

“Of all 500 stocks in the S&P over the last three years, this is one of two or three worst, down some 40 percent,” he said. “And actually, by my work, I think we’re out of the woods.”

Worth pointed out a trough pattern in the chart and noted an earnings beat in its latest quarterly report.

“We would give this the benefit of the doubt on the long side,” he said.
