    At the moment FCX is a company people love to hate. I believe it is way oversold and has a very good outlook for strong recovery.

    I bought FCX just a wee bit too early.

     

    This has cured my thirst for mining stocks for the time being.

     

    Are their any other stocks or sectors that will be similarly crushed in the coming weeks?

     

    I don't want to give all stocks an equal chance to destroy my portfolio.
