>>5 Hated Stocks Poised to Pop on Earnings Garmin (GRMN) is one name that immediately springs to mind. The GPS maker currently sports a short interest ratio of 20.7, which means that it would take more than a month of buying pressure at current volume levels just for shorts to exit their bets. Couple that with the fact that Garmin has a debt-free balance sheet, has staged a post-crash revenue turnaround in the last year, and pays out a 4.5% dividend yield, and this stock looks overly hated.
That means it should benefit more than most from a broad rally in stocks.
There's no question that we're still in a challenging market right now, but with a little perspective from the past, the anti-stock sentiment points to a rally of significant proportions over the longer-term. To see these names in action, check out the Dow 55,000 Portfolio on Stockpickr.
