So, today should be an interesting one in market land. I'd expect there to be some swings depending on the rhetoric coming out of Washington, and whether talk of a Fitch downgrade intensifies. This could actually be the day to deploy some dry powder, especially if the market shows any signs of nerves. That's certainly not the case pre-market, with futures up as I write this.
In the event of some intraday volatility, I'll be looking in deep value land, where sell-offs typically hit such stocks harder. I'll be keeping an eye on the "double nets", companies trading between one and two times net current asset value, that are on my radar. Companies like cash-rich Kulicke and Soffa (KLIC - Get Report), which is up 8% this week on the back of a Barron's article touting it, Benchmark Electronics (BHE - Get Report), AVX (AVX - Get Report), Tech Data (TECD) and Superior Industries (SUP - Get Report) to name a handful.
