Despite the onslaught of bears, there are actually plenty of stocks holding up well, and Ryan Mallory, of SharePlanner.com, points out that it could be worth pulling the trigger on some of them if the market can ever come around to finding a bottom to build off of Monday.
Yeah, Friday was good for the bulls, especially considering the two days of selling that it was coming out of, but prior to the market open Monday, the bears rushed crude and drove it all the way below its August lows and down to the 2009 recession lows.

From the list below, there are actually plenty of stocks holding up well against the onslaught of bears Monday and could be worth pulling the trigger on if the market can ever come around to finding a bottom to build off of Monday.
