If you are unfamiliar with the January Effect, this should help.

Picking bottoms (or a top) in a stock is one of the most difficult jobs on Wall Street and it is something which I rarely attempt to do. There is, however, one time of year that I have had success in finding deeply oversold stocks which have produced incredible short term percentage moves over the course of 2-3 weeks. Now is that time of year!

First, let’s understand how the January Effect works. Stocks which are down significantly at year end often experience further pressure as investors give up on the company and decide to sell the loser in order to offset gains they may have already taken in their account. Offsetting gains with losses allows investors to purge their losers and avoid paying some or all of the capital gains they may have already taken. It is also common for funds to sell their position in a losing stock so they don’t “look bad” for owning such a piece of garbage in their year end holdings disclosure. This is known as window dressing, they try to make their portfolio look good for investors.

The best description of the “January Effect” comes from Wikipedia “The January effect (sometimes called “year-end effect”) is a calendar effect wherein stocks, especially small-cap stocks, have historically tended to rise markedly in price during the period starting on the last day of December and ending on the fifth trading day of January. This effect is owed to year-end selling to create tax losses, recognize capital gains, effect portfolio window dressing, or raise holiday cash. Because such selling depresses the stocks but has nothing to do with their fundamental worth, bargain hunters quickly buy in, causing the January rally.”

I do not think it is as precise as the last day of the year and then selling on the fifth trading day of January, but the reason in this description is valid (except raising holiday cash, do you sell your stocks so you can buy a nice present for your wife?).

Keep in mind that the stocks on the list are not in good technical condition, the charts all look terrible! Also, the fundamentals for these companies are probably lousy. These stocks should be looked at as HIGH RISK and you should consider buying a basket of them across different industries to spread the risk.
