Now may be a good time to start hedging your bets on some of the more overvalued stocks in the market. According to Deutsche Bank analyst Lon Parisi, shareholders of McDonald’s Corporation MCD 1.12%, Johnson & Johnson JNJ 0.36% and NVIDIA Corporation NVDA 1.85% should consider buying puts to protect against a broad market sell-off in coming weeks.
“While the rebound is a welcome sight a deeper look at some of the constituents within the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 suggests that some stocks are overvalued and could experience a retracement particularly in the face of a broad-market sell-off,” Parisi warned.
Deutsche Bank screened for stocks that could be particularly at-risk of falling victim to a market selloff and identified stocks that met the following criteria: forward PE at least 70 percent higher than five-year average, outperformed both the S&P 500 and respective sector in the past year, share price within 5.0 percent of all-time high and liquid options market.

Or maybe you just want to be able to look sophisticated in front of your coworkers when they ask you what you are reading on your Kindle, and you’d prefer to tell them “Oh, I’m just reading a book about stock market analysis,” rather than the usual “Oh, I’m just looking at pics of my ex-girlfriend on Facebook.” For these reasons and more, check out my book, Beating Wall Street with Common Sense.
