Six Oversold Stocks Ready to Bounce

Because of the obvious dividend risk, this one may be better suited as a quick hit and run rather than a longer-term play. Shares have crumbled 11.5% in the last month of trading.

Arch is now once again breaking through the 90-day moving average and is demonstrating strength not seen for months.

Short interest with this stock is very high. More than one in five shares is short. Short-sellers are the smart money, but when they pile on this hard it can backfire too. The proportion of the float short is 22.5%. They are most likely waiting for an expected dividend cut that will send shares down if a dividend cut happens.

Dell (DELL - Get Report)

Background: Dell is a premier provider of products and services required for customers worldwide to build their information-technology and Internet infrastructures. Dell trades an average of 24 million shares per day with a market cap of $18.7 billion.

52-Week High: $18.36

52-Week Low: $10.48

Book Value: $5.62

Eleven analysts recommend this as a buy and one recommend selling. The average analyst target price for Dell is $14.50.

The mean fiscal year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 6.1, based on earnings of $1.75 per share this year. Fundamentally, 6.1 is a very low and generally reserved for companies about to "check out." Dell, in my opinion, is far from checking out, and for investors willing to hold longer term, this is perhaps one of the better value buys I have seen this year.

In the last month, the stock has really taken a turn for the worse. Shares have crumbled 14.3% in the last month of trading. Dell is oversold with multiple technical market timing buy indications.

Currently, the short interest based on the float is small and not a big concern. Short interest is 3%.
