Not every stock is going to go up even in a strong environment as we enjoyed so far in 2019. However, as the rapid pace of gains slows down we all need to be more mindful of pruning stocks likely to underperform from our portfolios…like the one’s newly downgraded to a POWR rating of sell.

9 new stocks are now “F” Strong Sell rated

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

The most notable name on the list are NVDA, MAT and SPOT. However, you probably should check the full list below to make sure you don’t have any of these stocks in your portfolio.

Typically when both the fundamentals and price action head south…the stock continues to underperform into the future. The best strategy is to sell these shares and find better opportunities elsewhere.
