For starters, trouble for banks, drugs, energy and M&A.
Let me give you the unassailable themes.
Value investors should look at lesser-known names to participate in any rally.
Robert W. Baird has upgraded J. C. Penney (JCP) to "Outperform" from a previous "Neutral." Cowen is raising its price target on Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) to $15 a share. (The stock tumbled 5.6% on Friday to close at $10.41.) Telsey Advisory Group has cut its price target for Williams-Sonoma (WSM) to $63 ahead of the firm's first-quarter results. SunTrust Robinson is raising BB&T (BBT) to a "Buy." Stifel has boosted its price target for Vulcan Materials (VMC) target to $131. (The stock closed Friday at $115.64.) We expect to talk about much much more this morning, including what the market's opening looks like and what will driving it today (China, oil and more). So sit back, relax and savor that morning cup of coffee as we get ready to tackle the coming trading day with you!
It seems you Diary regulars like this idea, and I've been happy to field your questions. I have found it fun to get some broad themes out there because I'm a new contributor, so thank you!
Basic materials is one of the sectors with some promising prospects.
