Caterpillar (CAT)

Caterpillar (CAT) has now dropped $30 since July of 2014. $80 appears to be technical support and the name is clearly out of favor. If you have an inner Warren Buffet, then this name may be worth a nibble as the current correction plays out.

AK Steel Holdings (AKS)

Steel stocks are trying to find a bottom. A name with a great deal of upside is AK Steel Holdings (AKS). The stock is under $5 so many institutions will not touch but hedge fund portfolio managers will push this name around if the steel stocks rally more. Needless to say it is a better speculative buy than some Brazilian penny stock in the steel space. Worth a look as a speculative name with a tight stop at $3.98.
