When dollars are leaving the market these days, they're really leaving for a while. Still, there have been and will continue to be mini-rallies on the way to the bottom. There have been two sectors that have been outperforming the market significantly during these mini-rallies. These include agriculture and mining stocks.
Let's take a look at a few plays during the market's last mini-rally lasting January 22th-February 1st (The market was up 8% during this time):
Syngenta Ag (SYT): up 14%
Monsanto (MON): up 22%
John Deere (DE): up 24%
Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT): up 38%
Aluminum Corporation of China (ACH): up 24%
Alcoa (AA): up 26%
Companhia Vale Do Rio Doce (RIO): up 32%
These companies aren't just going up with the market; they're pulling the market back up! If you want to be on board with winners during the mini-rallies, take some time to research these stocks. Again, the ability to predict the peaks and valleys in today's volatile market can not be understated in this volatile market. If you choose to enter the market at this time, make sure you're buying stocks at their lows and that you understand all risks involved.
