Dead Cat Bounces of the S&P 500
However, I wouldn't necessarily call them dead cats because most of them are fairly high quality stocks, however, because of their huge drop, there may be some buying opportunities.
One nice feature about all of these stocks which have underperformed their industry average by over 15% is that they all pay dividends of at least 1.5%. Shown below is the performance versus the other stocks in their industry, the market cap, and the yield.
Monsanto Company (MON) -21.7% $37.6B 1.5%
Sempra Energy (SRE) -17.9% $12.5B 3.1%
KLA-Tencor Corporation (KLAC) -17.7% $5.4B 1.9%
The Dun & Bradstreet Corporation (DNB) -17.4% $3.8B 1.9%
Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) -17.3% $18.2B 2.1%
H&R Block, Inc. (HRB) -16.7% $6.0B 3.3%
QUALCOMM, Inc. (QCOM) -15.8% $70.8B 1.8%
