7 Upgraded Stocks to Buy in April


There are pockets of opportunity.

It’s been a chaotic month in the stock market. But while most investors’ portfolios are hurting, analysts have been identifying pockets of long-term opportunity amid the market carnage. Following an unprecedented $2 trillion stimulus package, investors and analysts are feeling a bit more optimistic. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said last week he anticipates a “sharp, short” recession and a “fairly quick rebound.” Here are seven of CFRA’s most recent stock upgrades to buy on the dip.
