Five Strong Buy Stocks Ignoring the Selloff

David Bartosiak

Carnage today in the market as stocks came under pressure early and never relented. Over the last several weeks, most of the overnight moves were faded. Meaning, if the futures sold off overnight, buyers of the dip would be rewarded. On the flip side, fading the overnight move higher often lead to profits. Throw that out of the window today as the sellers took control, giving us an old-school bloodbath made worse by Fed talk.
