In the past month, fear took over the markets. Investors worried over the slowing U.S. economy, and the threat of an impending recession sent broader indices into a tailspin. The S&P's rating downgrade of the U.S. battered the markets pushing the Dow to its worst drop since Dec. 2008, sliding 15%.

On average, earnings for these stocks are expected to grow at 30% to 40% and analysts expect an upside of around 30% in the coming year. These stocks had mean returns of 42% in the last one year and analysts' buy ratings of 62%.
