If the market continues to tank, these 3 stocks could make you some cash on the short side.

They are Lumber Liquidators (LL), Ruger (RGR), and LinkedIn (LNKD).

Why these stocks? All three of these are decent companies. However, they have all risen 100% or more in the past 52 weeks. We think of the market continues to fall, these stocks will not walk away un-harmed. Lumber Liquidators looks ready to roll over, Ruger is due for another crash, and Linked In would be overvalued at half of its current share price.
