Sector Scan: Electronics and Telecom

These stocks are liquid and volatile for quick profits


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 while there are some electronics and telecom stocks you definitely don’t want to miss, there are also some real stinkers.

I’ve listed out the best candidates for short-term trading or options plays, from bullish to bearish.

Buy Watch

These stocks are in very strong uptrends. Be on the alert to buy these names on further strength.

  • Johnson Controls (NYSE:JCI)
  • JDS Uniphase (NASDAQ:JDS)
  • Silicon Labs (NASDAQ:SLA)
  • PerkinElmer (NYSE:PKI)

Improving Stocks

These stocks are temporarily improved from downward trends and show good upside characteristics relative to other stocks, but overhead resistance may limit the upside.

  • Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS)
  • Juniper Net (NYSE:JNPR)
  • Medtronic (NYSE:MDT)

Weak But Leveling

This stock is in a downtrend that has plateaued…for now.

  • Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ)

Weakest Stock in Electronics

This stock is completely broken down. Not much downside left here.

  • Sony (NYSE:SNE)
