Goldman Sachs’ equity strategy team just put together its quarterly chart book, detailing the brutal final quarter — and month — of 2018, and the firm’s outlook for this year.

The team, led by chief US equity strategist David Kostin, included a list of stocks with the most downside to the firm’s price targets.

In other words, the strategists compiled stocks trading at the highest premium to the firm’s price target, implying the stocks could fall sharply if the analysts are correct in their predictions.

Notably, of the 11 names Business Insider has listed below, most of the stocks are in the real estate or consumer staples sector. While the broader market posted a total return of -4% in 2018, real estate posted a total return of -2% in 2018, and consumer staples posted a total return of -8%.
