NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- I am reading nonstop negative news about the fiscal cliff and the possibility the European economy will fall off the map.You most likely are reading the same, and perhaps you're wondering whether any stocks are moving higher. After all, even one of my favorite stocks, Apple ( AAPL), is under pressure as a result of a selling feedback loop. A selling feedback loop occurs when investors who would otherwise prefer to continue holding a stock find themselves forced to sell because of margin calls (self-imposed or otherwise) and stop-losses. Initial selling may be caused by an internal or external force. Once started, more selling begets more selling, and round and round the loop spirals lower. CAG Dividend Yield data by YCharts
