BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- A handful of unlikely stocks could be toxic for your portfolio right now.
I'm not talking about the obvious names -- the ones grabbing the headlines with negative news or the ones with the heftiest short interest. Instead, these stocks are otherwise unassuming. That's what makes them so dangerous to own right now.
Mr. Market has been enjoying a hefty rally since the start of June 2012, climbing 10.4% since equities found their bottom. Just to be clear, that's a rally of pretty massive proportions for a three-month span. And the stocks that aren't participating in the rally are sending a warning signal to investors; so are the ones that have already used up all of their buying pressure. Today, we'll take a technical look at five toxic names that fit those two conditions.
