Sector Scan: Tech Stocks

Avoid these 11 tech trainwrecks

   

My Power Options system identifies the most volatile and liquid stocks for option trading or short-term stock trading, and this week it’s telling me that computers are short-circuiting.

Use the following information to help you with your own options or short-term stock trading program.

Guarded Stocks

These computer stocks are in a downward trend, with huge downside potential. Plenty of opportunity for puts here.

  • IBM (NYSE:IBM)
  • Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)
  • BMC Software (NASDAQ:BMC)

Weakest Stocks

These are the weakest stocks in downward trends—in bear markets, they’re severely broken down, and in a bull market, these are the laggards. In either case, these are stinkers to avoid.

  • Apple (NYSE:AAPL)
  • NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP)
  • Xerox (NYSE:XRX)

Sell Watch

Sell these stocks on any further weakness—they’re not worth the heartache.

  • 3M Co. (NYSE:MMM)
  • Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM)
  • Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO)
  • Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI)
  • Nokia (NYSE: NOK)
