Banged-up stocks can make for good buys

Banged-up stocks often make the best buys. I like to buy stocks on bad news that is real but temporary. That’s why, each quarter, I publish a Casualty List of wounded stocks I think will recover.

Apple Inc. and Exelon Corp. are both on the list. I also recommend GTAT Advanced Technologies Inc. and Finish Line Inc. Each was down 15 percent or more in the fourth quarter.
