Oppenheimer Serves Up 29 Top Stock Ideas For January

The equity market has been on a tear in 2017, with the S&P 500 Index poised to end the year with a gain of around 20 percent. The 14-day relative strength index for the S&P 500 Index — a momentum indicator — is around 76, suggesting overbought levels.

Investing in an overbought market is always a risky proposition. Even a smallest dose of negative news could lead cautious traders to press the panic button, triggering a sell-off.

But even in an overbought atmosphere, hidden gems can fetch incremental returns over the market. For those looking for that alpha opportunity, Oppenheimer has released its top 29 stock ideas for January.

A Menu, Not A Portfolio 

Oppenheimer analysts were asked to contribute a pick they expect will outperform over the next 12 months based on their view of company fundamentals "in the context of current market conditions," according to the research firm. 

The stock ideas should be taken as a menu rather than as a portfolio, according to Oppenheimer.
