VIDEO Volatility is back in a big way for the stock market. After the mid-term elections, investors thought that the worst was over. Late last week, sellers jumped back into the market and put investors back on edge. For the astute investor, this sort of volatility can be a perfect time to nibble on stocks. That doesn’t mean that you can blindly buy the dip in the market. Looking for stocks with positive earnings estimate revisions during downturns in markets can lead to big profits. One example of a stock with positive revisions is today’s Bull of the Day, Attunity ( ATTU - Free Report) Attunity is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) in the Internet Software industry which ranks in the Top 16% of our Zacks Industry Rank.
