6 Crash Stocks to Buy Now

Stock quotes in this article: PM, DLR, AAPL, CPL, ABB, PG

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Mr. Market's looking especially strong right now -- which is all the more reason to load up on "crash stocks."

Worldwide, stocks have managed to turn out a prodigious rally in the last week. At home, the S&P 500 has climbed more than 8.7% in those last five trading sessions -- a push higher that looks like it'll continue as of this morning's open. As a result, it's likely that we'll get a test of the upper bound of the price range that's constricted stock movements in the last quarter. That's a crucial resistance level to break through for this rally to continue.

>>5 Trading Setups to Ride This Rally

The added uncertainty factor is why I'm advocating "crash stocks." First, a little bit on what a crash stock is -- and what it's not.

I'm not talking about buying up the traditional boring names to get defensive. Instead, a crash stock is a company that sports the combination of a discounted fundamental valuation and bullish momentum and relative strength trends -- that combination makes these six stocks better-suited to defend your portfolio from a bear raid. And it also means that these crash stocks are primed to big beneficiaries if this rally can push through to new ground.

Without further ado, here's a look at the crash stocks.
