17 Slippery Slope Stocks to Sell Right Away

I can hardly believe it’s nearly August already. Time surely does fly. But you won’t want to waste the next few days, because August is traditionally the weakest month of the year for Wall Street. As investors are on vacation, volume is light and unscrupulous short sellers love to attack the market. This week and next week have the potential to be particularly volatile.

So now is the time to reevaluate your portfolio and make sure it is in fighting form. However, because we’re still in the midst of earnigns season, you’ll want to make sure that you’re only selling stocks that have become more volatile of late. You can do this at any time using my Portfolio Grader tool, and to get you started here’s a list of 17 more aggressive blue chips that should be sold right away:
