Strategist Saut Thinks Trading Bottom Is Near

Jeff Saut is out with his latest investment strategy comments, emphatically titled, "Ouch." This of course refers to the precipitous decline in markets as of late. He writes, that, "My risk management discipline forced me to raise more cash again on Friday, even though I believe the stock market is in the process of making a significant 'low.' "

We've covered Saut's risk management principles before and while those principles caused him to raise cash levels last week, he's confident that markets are now oversold.

He cites the great folks at Bespoke who said that "61.4% of the SPX's stocks are oversold. The current oversold level is only the 27th time since 1990 that more than 60% of stocks in the index have been [this] oversold."

At this point, Saut believes you should 'keep your head screwed-on straight' and start compiling your buy list. In addition to some of Saut's favorite stocks, he recently added Abbott Labs (ABT), Copa Holdings (CPA), Digital Realty Trust (DLR) and Norfolk Southern (NSC) as solid candidates.

Embedded below is Jeff Saut's latest market commentary where he talks about an impending trading bottom in stocks drawing near:
