Traders can benefit from applying Relative Strength Index (RSI) signals in prevailing market conditions. One approach to consider which oversold stocks to buy is to wait for the RSI to cross back above 30% before considering an entry. Additionally, initiating a more minor initial position and incrementally increasing exposure could mitigate risk.

With their RSI indicating deeply oversold levels, these stocks to buy may be primed for a rebound. This could mean not only potentially fast gains from a correction higher, but also until momentum shifts to overbought conditions.​ So, keep an eye out for these oversold stocks to buy and remember that timing is everything.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) is the first of the oversold stocks to buy. Its share price declined significantly into negative territory following disappointing earnings as it reached a 52-week low. Investors were displeased by poor performance in China, which contributed to missing the bottom line by 6.6% and necessitated a reduction in forecasts.

The shares currently trade with a RSI of just 2.4 and a price-to-earnings ratio of 21.3. This is below the average for the S&P 500, which stands at 27.

APD recently increased its dividend for the 42nd consecutive time, and revenue guidance still implies that the company anticipates growth. Analysts appear optimistic, with none recommending a “Sell” and providing an average target price of $270 per share.​

Endeavour Silver’s (NYSE:EXK) share price has declined in line with small-cap stocks despite the weaker dollar having little positive impact on silver prices. This has left the stock significantly oversold with an RSI of 5.15, in contrast to its sound financial performance. As a result, it makes a good candidate as an oversold stock to buy.

Management recently provided an update on progress at the Terronera project, which is expected to commence commercial operations by the end of the year. The project is expected to produce up to 69.7 million ounces of silver equivalent over its lifetime.

Analyst coverage remains notably more optimistic than current market levels. All recommend either a “Hold” or a “Buy” on the stock. Consensus target price represents a 290% increase potential from current prices, averaging $5.83.​

Waters Corp’s (NYSE:WAT) earnings beat expectations on top and bottom-lines. However, the discouraging results from China seem to have spooked investors. This is especially true as its larger rival Thermo Fisher (NYSE:TMO), issued a warning that demand was unlikely to improve this year. The company only anticipates modest growth in sales revenue.

The stock price of WAT declined in the days following the earnings release, resulting in an RSI of 5.2. However, analysts are adopting a more optimistic stance. Five are adjusting their recommendation from “Hold” in January to a “Strong Buy” in February. The average target price is $325, representing a relatively modest improvement compared to the current price.​
