July 6, 2007: Short stocks? Ideas to mull

I ran a stock screen today and thought I would focus on a narrow band of "shorts" for consideration. I am NOT an advocate of shorting stocks. I much prefer to buy stocks based upon value considerations or a great new idea (the Peter Lynch Story Stock- kind of).

The following stocks have experienced a very recent downgrade which may have not been caught by traders this week. These stocks have formed a significant top formation with distribution characteristics or, stocks that have experienced a significant downward move with momentum still in place for more downward retracement.

Here goes:

ACI (Arch Coal, Inc.)
AGL (Angelica Corporation)
ALNY (Ainylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
ALTU (Altus Corp.)
ANGN (Angelon Corp.)
CLUB (Town Sports International Holdings)
