These six top stocks make sense for investors looking to rotate from high-flying tech momentum leaders to cyclical players poised to outperform as the economy recovers in the next year.
Jefferies considers these five top financial stocks to be incredible values now, and with bank earnings for the big money center players coming this week, it may be time to jump in.
Of the 30 or so regional and mid-cap banks covered in a new Wedbush report, only these were named as the top picks with ample upside.
The top analyst upgrades, downgrades and other research calls from Tuesday include American Tower, AutoNation, Biogen, CarMax, Chipotle Mexican Grill, eBay, PG&E, Walgreens and Zions Bancorp.

While last week was decidedly slow for the insiders selling stock, that has been the case since the big market drop in late August.
Tuesday's top analyst upgrades, downgrades and initiations include CenturyLink, JetBlue AIrways, Level 3 Communications, Netflix, PulteGroup, United Technologies, VMware and Whiting Petroleum.
While Jefferies thinks the Fed waits until December to raise rates, there is always a chance it will happen this week.
The stock market remains a place to invest even though interest rates are poised to rise. Finding good growth stocks that have not been momentum darlings has been a challenge.
