Dump These 5 Toxic Stocks or Sell Short for Timely Profits

Success in investing hinges upon correct identification of overblown toxic stocks and the rightly priced ones. However, spotting the toxic stocks on time and getting rid of them to make some profits is not an easy task.

Overpriced toxic stocks are generally susceptible to external shocks. Moreover, these stocks are loaded with huge debts. The price of these toxic stocks is artificially inflated. However, the higher price of toxic stocks is only temporary as it is higher than its true intrinsic value.

Investors may profit from proper identification of toxic stocks with the help of an investing strategy known as short selling. This strategy permits investors to sell a stock first and then buy it when the price falls.

While short selling excels in bear markets, it typically loses money in bull markets.

So, figuring out toxic stocks and discarding or short selling them at the right time is the key to protect your portfolio from big losses.
