Top Stock #1: AmerisourceBergen Corp. (ABC) Pharmaceutical services company AmerisourceBergen Corp. (NYSE: ABC ) provides drug distribution and related services.

Top Stock #2: AT&T (T) Blue chip AT&T, Inc. (NYSE: T ) fell from a high of almost $43 to under $22 at the bear market low. This household name formed a bottom (cup), then broke from the right side of the cup, which completes a double-top . Often stocks will break from a top like this only to immediately succumb to profit-taking. It is at this point that some of the timeliest purchases are made. The technical target for the breakout is $32.50. S&P rates the stock a "five-star buy" with a 12-month target of $33.
