7 Stocks That Outperformed During The Summer Crash and Will Outperform in the Near Future


Since peaking this summer on July 22, the equity market has tumbled only to have somewhat recovered but still remains well below the summer highs. There are a variety of reasons to account for the "Summer Crash", most notably the continued weakness in the European credit markets and concerns for a double dip recession in the USA.
From July 22 to Sept 2, the S&P 500 (SPX) declined by 12.72%. However, not all stocks declined as much and, many, in fact actually rose. Some, but not all, of these stocks are also poised for further outperformance for the balance of the year.
Stock picking is all about finding the right stocks. That is why we have portfolios in Stockpickr. Looking at a broad array of stocks, I performed a screen of US stocks which outperformed the S&P 500 over that period of time. Stocks with market capitalizations below $100,000,000; stock prices below $5; stocks that are takeover targets; and, ETFs were excluded from my analysis. Here are some of those top performing stocks that I expect to continue to outperform the market in the near future.
