5 Rocket Stocks Worth Buying This Week

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- The dust is settling from last week's selling. All told, it was the worst single week for stocks since all the way back in August. The S&P 500 index sold off a whopping 1.6%, knocking 2013's market performance down to a "gaunt" 24.48%.

>>5 Stocks Ready to Break Out

The reality is that it's pretty telling when a 1.6% decline is the biggest one-week loss in around four months. This rally has been consistent and low-volatility all the way up.

And this morning, stocks are pointed toward reclaiming some of those lost points. With December's end drawing nearer, it's probably a pretty safe bet to expect we'll get an interesting end to this year's trading. After all, scores of institutional investors are looking for a last-minute boost before the books get shut for 2013. That means there are likely to be some big opportunities in the most well-liked equity names in the next two weeks.

To take full advantage, we're taking a closer look at five Rocket Stocks worth buying.
