Sometimes, an investor can find a silver lining in market chaos.

And this week, there was chaos in the markets.

“Our view is this is a buying opportunity,” wrote Adam Parker, Chief US Equity Strategist at Morgan Stanley. “In particular, we prefer Consumer Discretionary as well as Financials and Energy stocks with good risk-reward. We forecast about 4% operating earnings growth this year.”

Among his top picks, we grabbed the 13 that had an upside potential of 25% or greater based on Morgan Stanley analysts’ price targets.

Morgan Stanley’s clients got the jump on these picks when the list was published earlier on Thursday. But many continue to offer some value.

Check out the list below from lowest upside to highest.
