The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Eric and Jeremy check in on some growth names investors should love. Early last week, the market witnessed its worst trading day of the year -- a relatively minor 1.5% drop -- and growth stocks sold off extremely aggressively. While these stocks have since rebounded as the market continued charging forward this week, the sell-off last week does highlight that any market correction will lead to outsize losses across growth stocks. As Eric says, that can be great news for investors; the key is to have a buying list ready of businesses you believe have a bright future ahead of them. He suggests five stocks that should be on your watchlist if the market retreats from its furious 2012 run.
