Many stocks have been beaten down to very low prices due to tax selling, creating bargain basement opportunities, suggests Fred Fuld, editor of stockerblog.
In fact, looking at stocks that are selling below cash is one the way to go to make profits. Here is what it means when a stock sells below cash per share.
First, assuming the company has no debt, you take the amount of cash that the company has in the bank and divide it by the outstanding number of shares. That represents the cash per share.
If a stock is trading for less than that amount, it is a bargain, because if the company went out of business immediately, everything would be liquidated and disbursed on a per share basis.
Even if all the company’s inventory, equipment, and real estate were worth nothing, all that cash would provide the investor with a profit.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now: SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (WNDW)
- [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:WNDW) is another third-party currently engaged in research and development to incorporate one of GLW’s glass products in an innovative manner. WNDW, a leading developer of transparent electricity-generating coatings for glass windows and flexible veneers, announced its plan to develop electricity-generating flexible glass. In particular, WNDW’s scientists and engineers recently applied layers of its liquid coatings onto GLW’s Willow Glass and laminated them under conditions that simulate the high pressure and temperatures of the manufacturing processes used by commercial glass and window producers. The result was a bendable glass “veneer” which generates electricity. WNDW anticipates installing these sheets of electricity-generating glass veneers over existing office tower windows, turning buildings into vertical power generators and helping decrease their carbon footprint. The company also believes that such veneers could be applied to flat and curved surfaces on automobiles, trucks, buses, airplanes, and boats to generate onboard electrical power. WNDW’s veneer products are being developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in an effort to commercialize WNDW’s products. While we saw no specific timeline for when WNDW would offer its products incorporating Willow Glass, we are once again excited by this innovative use of a GLW product.
