We have been diligent in reminding our readers that a market correction may be imminent. Given the market’s reaction to the possibility of the tapering of the quantitative easing and the end of the quarter for portfolio managers looking to lock in gains, stock prices are looking more palatable. The Federal Reserve is growing more comfortable with the economy, which ultimately should prove bullish for stocks. That said, it still makes sense to scale in or buy partial position in these top names, as the selling may not be over.
