With the winds of change headed to Washington, deeply underweight (relative to what the models suggest) is not necessarily a bad place for a stock to be. The high flyers, UBS points out, have further to fall:

“Once these trades reach their critical value, or an exogenous shock occurs, we expect a sharp price reversal as investors unwind their exposure in tandem.”
