A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.In trading on Friday, shares of NeuStar, Inc. ( NSR) entered into oversold territory, hitting an RSI reading of 28.8, after changing hands as low as $22.00 per share. By comparison, the current RSI reading of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is 46.6.
