The Cure for Altitude Sickness

Stocks sprinted above 1800 to start the session on Monday. And just as quickly investors got a case of altitude sickness leading to a close at 1791. Likely we will see some consolidation around this point. That is quite fair when you remember the market is already up over 25% this year.

We've had a number of these consolidation periods in 2013. The best strategy is to put together a list of Zacks #1 stocks you would like to own after a 5%+ drop from recent levels. Then be sure to act when the opportunity avails itself.

Here are some timely investment commentaries to build up your list of trades to snap up when the time is right.
