NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As daunting as it may be at times, buying stocks when they are unloved by others demonstrates an ability to separate emotion from logic. Companies become oversold when emotion takes over in the market and drives the prices lower.The desire to escape the pain of further losses results in many selling at the precise moment they should buy. Of course, sometimes stocks become oversold as a result of proper money-management stop-losses triggered. Having a stop loss is vital to investing survival and your exit plan must be put in place before considering an entry.
