Kapitall Strategies: Top 10 Rebound Candidates From Today's Losers

(List compiled by Eben Esterhuizen, CFA)

Strategy: If a stock is down more than 3% since yesterday's close, buy it, and sell it on the close 10 trading sessions later.

But which stocks seeing losses today might be good candidates for this strategy?

To help you get ideas, we started with a universe of about 200 stocks that have declined by more than 3% since yesterday's close (i.e. strategy candidates).

We went back in time, and evaluated how many times these stocks rebounded from similar losses over the last quarter.

For each backtested rebound strategy, we'll also report the average return made on the investment (ignoring transaction costs).

Recent history suggests that these stocks are resilient, and may rebound from today's sell-off. That said, it's important to point out that past performance is no guarantee of future results.

In other words, just because these stocks rebounded from similar losses over the last quarter, there is no guarantee that they will do so again today.

As always, use this list only as a starting point for your own analysis.

For each stock listed, we'll also include the annual performance.
