Most every stock is up since the Christmas Eve low. However, that bullish environment often masks underlying weakness that will become more evident when stocks are not raging higher…like now.

The 61 stocks below are showing some of the weakest momentum according to our POWR Rating system. Typically the reason why stocks underperform is because of fundamental weakness driving investors away from shares. Often that weakness continues which is why you shouldn’t have these companies in your portfolio.

12 new stocks are now “F” Strong Sell rated

49 new stocks have faltered to a “D” Sell rating
