Top 10 Cheap Stocks To Own For 2021

Companies are on pace to post the most earnings beats in at least a decade, according to John Butters, senior earnings analyst at FactSet.

Butters said in a note that 80 percent of the S&P 500 companies that have reported quarterly results through Friday have posted better-than-expected earnings. “If 80% is the final number, it will mark the highest percentage since FactSet began tracking this metric in Q3 2008,” he said in the note Friday.

Much of the earnings outperformance comes from telecom, health-care and tech companies, Butters noted. All of the S&P 500 telecom companies have reported better-than-expected earnings this season, while 96 percent of health-care companies have outperformed earnings expectations. In tech, 93 percent of company earnings have exceeded forecasts.

Through Friday, 81 percent of S&P 500 companies had released their latest quarterly reports. Some of the companies that have reported better-than-expected results include major banks J.P. Morgan Chase and Bank of America as well as tech giants like Amazon and Apple.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.

    There is certainly a growing market for vegan products. But Beyond Meat has only taken in a scant $56 million in revenues over the past nine months and is nowhere near profitability. By contrast, Wendy’s (NYSE: WEN) has 6,700 global locations that generate $1.6 billion in annual sales and $230 million in free cash flow — not to mention a dividend that was just raised by 18%.

    UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) is America’s top health care insurer. After making many acquisitions over the past few decades to cover millions of Americans’ health insurance, UnitedHealth is also quite well-known to retirees for its Medicare Supplement Plans offered through AARP. One drawback here is that UnitedHealth pays only a 1.4 percent dividend yield at the start of 2019, but in the past five years its shares more than tripled in price, and it is now even a member of the Dow, with a market cap of over $250 billion. It also now is more targeted as a health insurer with an easier model to understand than some of its peers, which are merging into health care conglomerates of sorts.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more. Earnings season may be winding down, but concerns about the U.S. brick-and-mortar retail industry are always high. This week, Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD), Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN), and Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) will report earnings from the holiday quarter. Look for earnings reports from American States Water Co. (NYSE: AWR), Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE: CLDT), EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR), Etsy Inc.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares. 

  • [By Joe Tenebruso]

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) dominate their respective corners of the entertainment industry. As they’ve risen to power over the last decade, they’ve earned fortunes for investors along the way.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    A lot can happen to a stock in just a couple of weeks. There were 275.5 million shares of Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) sold short at the end of January, the largest number of bearish bets placed on the satellite radio provider in more than a year. Two weeks later, short interest fell to 174.7 million shares, a fresh 52-week low in pessimism. 

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Or look at Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI). It traded for just $0.70 in 2010. Now it’s worth $5.90 a share, an incredible 778% surge.

    Those are the sorts of potential gains the top penny stocks offer, and you wouldn’t have to trade sketchy shell companies on pink sheets to access those gains either.

    Kohl’s Co. (NYSE:KSS) – Investment analysts at Jefferies Financial Group upped their Q2 2020 earnings per share (EPS) estimates for shares of Kohl’s in a report issued on Tuesday, March 5th. Jefferies Financial Group analyst R. Konik now expects that the company will post earnings of $1.90 per share for the quarter, up from their prior estimate of $1.86. Jefferies Financial Group also issued estimates for Kohl’s’ Q3 2020 earnings at $1.04 EPS, Q4 2020 earnings at $2.48 EPS, FY2020 earnings at $6.10 EPS and FY2021 earnings at $6.45 EPS.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now

Real-estate investment trusts, or REITs, have not performed well recently. Over the past six months, equity REITs have underperformed the S&P 500 by nearly 14 percentage points, mainly thanks to rising interest rates.

This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector. One in particular that I bought more of recently was 3.8%-yielding Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), which in late February dipped below $100 per share for the first time since 2016 after weak results from a competitor spooked investors and caused all data-center REITs to plunge.

    UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) is America’s top health care insurer. After making many acquisitions over the past few decades to cover millions of Americans’ health insurance, UnitedHealth is also quite well-known to retirees for its Medicare Supplement Plans offered through AARP. One drawback here is that UnitedHealth pays only a 1.4 percent dividend yield at the start of 2019, but in the past five years its shares more than tripled in price, and it is now even a member of the Dow, with a market cap of over $250 billion. It also now is more targeted as a health insurer with an easier model to understand than some of its peers, which are merging into health care conglomerates of sorts.

Top 5 Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now

Trump’s tax plan was officially released today (April 26).

The plan included various cuts and reductions to both corporate and personal tax rates. The corporate tax rate is set to be reduced to 15%, down from the current 35%, and U.S. companies would owe little to no tax on future overseas profits. Trump also proposed a 35% top tax rate for individuals, down from today’s 39.6%. However, this is still above the 33% rate he backed during the campaign. Lower brackets would be set at 10% and 25%, and married persons would not be taxed on the first $24,000 of their income.

Trump proposed the estate tax and alternative minimum tax would be repealed.

Yet critics point out that the plan fails to include some key promises of Trump’s campaign – like the border adjustment tax. This may be viewed as a negative by those in Washington, but it’s a win for investors…

“This is good news for anybody that imports anything across borders,” said Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald today on FOX Business’ “Varney & Co.” “This is good all around — less government means a bigger wallet.”

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares.

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) dominate their respective corners of the entertainment industry. As they’ve risen to power over the last decade, they’ve earned fortunes for investors along the way.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    A lot can happen to a stock in just a couple of weeks. There were 275.5 million shares of Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) sold short at the end of January, the largest number of bearish bets placed on the satellite radio provider in more than a year. Two weeks later, short interest fell to 174.7 million shares, a fresh 52-week low in pessimism. 

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Or look at Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI). It traded for just $0.70 in 2010. Now it’s worth $5.90 a share, an incredible 778% surge.

    Those are the sorts of potential gains the top penny stocks offer, and you wouldn’t have to trade sketchy shell companies on pink sheets to access those gains either.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    A few years ago, Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) management determined that many of the department store chain’s stores were too big. In many cases, Kohl’s was filling these stores with more inventory than was necessary to meet demand, just so the stores wouldn’t look empty. That excess inventory led to margin-sapping clearance discounts at the end of each season.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Monday was an extremely strong day for the stock market, as major indexes finished well above where they started the session. Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Neha Chamaria]

    XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) is having a hard time winning back investor confidence. Shares of the logistics company slumped 17.2% in February, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, giving up all its gains from January and then some. In fact, the stock continues to head lower this month, having dropped another 4% as of this writing.

The kids liked it. If you go to Canada, one thing that’s ubiquitous in Canada, Tim Hortons. We went there for breakfast and my kids just could not get enough of the biscuits and the Timbits, which are the equivalent of Munchkins. My son has his Robinhood account now, so he’s always on the lookout for stocks to buy. He said, “Can I buy Tim Hortons stock?” And I said, “Yes you can.” And actually, I told him a story. A long time ago, when I was in college, I actually bought Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) stock on the thesis that Baja Fresh, which they owned at the time, was the next hot concept, and way better than Chipotle. Now, you fast forward a couple of years, Baja Fresh basically was worthless to Wendy’s. Chipotle had gone on to be the winner in the burrito space. Obviously since reverted to the mean. But, made a lot of money on Wendy’s because of Tim Horton’s. They also own Tim Hortons, and Tim Hortons is growing crazy for them, they’re growing all across Canada and the U.S.

    Shares of Sirius XM Holidngs Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI) tumbled today after the market turned sour on its acquisition of Pandora Media (NYSE:P).

Sirius stock closed down 10.3%, while Pandora finished down 1.1% after trading as a high as 10.2% earlier as its value is now linked to Sirius XM’s in the all-stock deal.

    The holiday season is typically a busy one for XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO). With the rise of e-commerce, it’s more important than ever to have efficient ways of getting goods where they need to go, and XPO has played a key role in helping to facilitate that movement. However, XPO has been dealing with some issues affecting one of its major customers, and that could have long-lasting negative impacts on its growth potential.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Daniel B. Kline]

    When Sirius and XM merged in 2008 to become Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI), the combined company still filled a need. It offered depth and niche choices in music that conventional radio did not. In addition, the service had talk offerings led by Howard Stern that were unlike anything found on terrestrial radio, and an impressive array of sports broadcasting rights.

Let’s take a closer look at these seven stocks trading for $7 or less.

    Remember, Apple (AAPL) had run because its service-revenue stream made the tech giant part of an elite group of companies. It joined Costco (COST) , Netflix (NFLX) , and SiriusXM (SIRI) , Spotify (SPOT) and Amazon (AMZN) (home of Amazon Prime) as companies that charge you recurring fees that you don’t seem to notice or care about. So, Apple’s stock no longer represents the tug to the group, and each company has to develop a separate power base away from Cupertino.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

Top Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now: UnitedHealth Group Incorporated(UNH)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Going into earnings season, one school of thought was that investors might be concerned more about companies’ forward guidance in some cases than in Q1 results. There was worry that perhaps the recent market turmoil and fears of a possible trade war could dampen some S&P 500 firms’ expectations for what the near future might bring. It’s less than a week since earnings began and guidance could still represent a speed bump in coming weeks, but so far it hasn’t been a problem. For instance, UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) raised fiscal year guidance Tuesday, and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) raised its revenue guidance. In other signs of general good cheer, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) raised its quarterly dividend, while Netflix (NFLX) reported big gains in subscriber growth. It’s still really early and things could change, but maybe some of those guidance fears could have been, shall we say, misguided?

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. Following the agreement, analysts noted that the document signed by both parties included no concrete details for achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. Trump responded to criticism by saying he is fully confident that the Korean dictatorship will follow through. A U.S. district court will rule on whether to approve an $85 billion merger between AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX). The decision comes after about six weeks of debate in a courtroom. The ruling will likely have a significant impact on the proposed bid by The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) for media giant Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (NYSE: FOXA). The Fed Open Market Committee kicks off its June meeting today. The U.S. central bank is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in 2018. On Wednesday, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will likely announce a hike of 0.25% to the benchmark rate to 2%. This would also mark the seventh hike since December 2015. Markets will be looking for clues during Powell’s conference to determine how many additional times the Fed plans to raise interest rates during the final six months of the year.

    There’s sound logic behind this plan to create a one-stop shop for services including enterprise IT, high-performance computing, intelligence analysis, launch support, logistics, and training. The deal would move Science Applications International (SAIC) past Booz Allen Hamilton into second place among pure-play government services firms, trailing only Leidos Holdings in terms of annual sales. But the deal also creates near-term uncertainty around SAIC and could lead to further dealmaking in this rapidly consolidating sector.

Top 5 Cheap Stocks To Own For 2019: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Contractors including Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) have been richly rewarded over the last two years. The current-year Pentagon budget, at $700 billion, is the largest in history and represented a 15.5%, or $94 billion, jump from the year prior. That’s the largest single-year jump since a 26.6% gain in 2002.

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    Whiteman: It is. The big guns, so to speak, are the names you mentioned, Lockheed Martin being the biggest with an $85 billion market cap. Then, there’s a handful of other companies that are focused mostly on weapons platforms — your General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), Northrop Grumman, Raytheon. The Boeing defense business is only 20% of the company, but it’s still a huge contractor. 

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    General Dynamics Corp. (NYSE: GD) dropped about 2.1% Thursday to post a new 52-week low of $187.32. Shares closed at $191.40 on Wednesday and the stock’s 52-week high is $230.00. Volume was 25% higher than the daily average of around 1.6 million. The defense giant had no specific news.

    Moreno was also upbeat on General Dynamics (GD) , which just made a bullish crossover, but felt that Raytheon had the best chart of them all.

    Cramer agreed, saying he’s bullish on all of these names.

Hot Cheap Stocks For 2019

HDFC Securities’ research report on Granules India

Driven  by  fresh  capacities  in  API/PFI  and  resumption  of OTC product supplies  for  the  US partner, revenues grew 42%YoY to Rs 5.0bn in 4QFY18.  However,  steep  price  increase in key raw materials (ex. Acetic acetate), unfavorable  geographic  mix  and  inventory write off led to sharp fall in EBITDA  margin  from 18% in 3QFY18 to 8.7% in 4QFY18. As a result, reported PAT  was  at Rs 204mn, down 55%YoY. GRAN had taken Rs 240mn incremental R&D spend  through  P&L  in  4QFY18,  due to new accounting policies. Moreover, there was Rs 120mn inventory write off. Adjusted for these expenses, EBITDA margin  was  at 18%. The impact of raw material price hike and business mix was only ~300-400bps, in our view.

Outlook

At CMP, the stock  is  trading  at  15.7x  FY18E, 11.6x FY19E and 8.6x FY20E, still 50% cheaper  to  industry peers. We continue to maintain BUY with reduced TP of Rs 115 (12x FY20E).

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

Hot Cheap Stocks For 2019: Emerson Electric Company(EMR)

    While long-term secular growth looks assured, it’s the cyclical part of its growth that has come under scrutiny in 2018. It hasn’t been an easy year for Rockwell shareholders, not least because they watched on as management rejected a $225 bid from Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) in the fall, and then watched on as its peer significantly outperformed while Rockwell’s stock has declined in 2018.

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Indeed, companies like Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) and Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) are seeing increased demand for their capital equipment. Emerson’s process-automation orders are growing strongly as its heavy-industry customers are spending again, while Caterpillar’s sales in the resource industries segment may well be in the early innings of a multiyear upcycle.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) has been the “wait ’til next year” story of the defense industry for several years now. The company’s initial guidance for 2019 suggests that investors are going to need to be patient a while longer.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Shipbuilding and services specialist Huntington Ingalls (NYSE:HII) was spun off from Northup Grumman in early 2011. General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) is roughly six times larger and offers a far more diversified list of products and services that includes submarines, aircraft, and armored vehicles, among other things. Both, however, provide key products and services to the U.S. military. That’s normally a fairly consistent business driven by large and often very long contracts. With a supportive administration in the White House, it would seem like now is a good time to take a look at this pair of stocks. But which of these two military-industrial companies is a better buy? Using a Benjamin Graham lens, the answer may not be what you want to hear.

Hot Cheap Stocks For 2019: International Business Machines Corporation(IBM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund, Chris Neiger, and Ashraf Eassa]

    Anders Bylund (IBM): There hasn’t been a better time to buy IBM as an income stock in the last 25 years. Aside from a very brief stint at 4.4% in February 2016, Big Blue hasn’t offered 4.2% yields since the fall of 1993. But that’s where the stock stands today, and I think you should lock in those ultra-generous yields while they last.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The technology industry has changed dramatically over the decades, but many giants from previous eras are still around, playing important roles. International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) and Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) have both had to take critical looks at their businesses to identify new areas into which they could successfully expand, or else run the risk of becoming obsolete.

  • [By ]

    I believe that some companies such as a 4.4%-yielding International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM), while having cheaper valuations because of past missteps and/or the weight of the older “legacy” business, do have significant potential to play a role in the future and make money from the advances in modern technology.

Top 5 Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now

By Emily Guy Birken, Next Avenue Contributor 

(This article is adapted from the new book, End Financial Stress Now: Immediate Steps You Can Take to Improve Your Financial Outlook, by Emily Guy Birken.)

Personal-finance writers often offer ways to find extra money in a budget, but those suggestions are frequently either stress-inducing (like increasing income through side hustles), small potatoes (like suggestions on how to reduce your grocery bill) or unrealistic (like suggesting you move to an area with a cheaper cost of living).

The suggestions that follow, by contrast, should offer you real improvements in your monthly cash flow without increasing your overall stress level or asking you to keep track of the savings you see. Implementing any one of them can potentially help you find the breathing room you need to get ahead.

    Compass Minerals International, Inc. (NYSE:CMP) is often listed as a miner, but the salt and fertilizer it produces are a bit different than what most investors think of when they hear the word “miner.” That makes Compass something of an odd duck and results in it being off of most investors’ radar screens. A tough 2017 is another net negative. That’s a shame, since it currently sports a yield of more than 4.4%, and the business outlook is improving. Here’s what investors are missing out on with this high-yield stock.

Earnings season has reached its peak, but overall, investors have been a lot more comfortable with the idea that sustained economic growth could last further into 2019 than they were during the stock market’s swoon in December. Nevertheless, not every company was able to find success during a tough period. Newell Brands (NYSE:NWL), TrueCar (NASDAQ:TRUE), and XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO) were among the worst performers.

We went there for breakfast and my kids just could not get enough of the biscuits and the Timbits, which are the equivalent of Munchkins. My son has his Robinhood account now, so he’s always on the lookout for stocks to buy. He said, “Can I buy Tim Hortons stock?” And I said, “Yes you can.” And actually, I told him a story. A long time ago, when I was in college, I actually bought Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) stock on the thesis that Baja Fresh, which they owned at the time, was the next hot concept, and way better than Chipotle. Now, you fast forward a couple of years, Baja Fresh basically was worthless to Wendy’s. Chipotle had gone on to be the winner in the burrito space. Obviously since reverted to the mean. But, made a lot of money on Wendy’s because of Tim Horton’s. They also own Tim Hortons, and Tim Hortons is growing crazy for them, they’re growing all across Canada and the U.S.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock. Look for other earnings reports from Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS), Boyd Gaming (NYSE: BYD), Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), Dropbox (NYSE: DBX), First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE), Kraft Hein

Top 10 Cheap Stocks To Watch Right Now

Generally, stocks that have fallen out of favor with the market are cheap for a reason. But, on occasion, savvy investors can scoop up a stock on the cheap and enjoy solid returns when the company proves its doubters wrong. It’s not easy to discern which stocks fall into the pessimistically undervalued category, but here are two to consider: Hostess (NASDAQ:TWNK), which is expanding and adapting its portfolio of snacks to drive growth, and General Motors (NYSE:GM) which could potentially strike gold thanks to its 2016 Cruise Automation acquisition.

Snacking is still a thing

Hostess has shed roughly 11% of its value over the past 12 months, a period during which it has dealt with a CEO transition and a growing recognition among investors that the trends in the U.S. point toward a preference for healthier snacks. Its shares are currently trading at a paltry price-to-earnings ratio of 6x. And while Americans are certainly choosing to eat healthier these days, Hostess can expand its portfolio of snack foods to drive growth and earn a higher multiple from Wall Street down the road.

    Compass Minerals International, Inc. (NYSE:CMP) is often listed as a miner, but the salt and fertilizer it produces are a bit different than what most investors think of when they hear the word “miner.” That makes Compass something of an odd duck and results in it being off of most investors’ radar screens. A tough 2017 is another net negative. That’s a shame, since it currently sports a yield of more than 4.4%, and the business outlook is improving. Here’s what investors are missing out on with this high-yield stock.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Neiger, Anders Bylund, and Steve Symington]

    Unisys shares have seen their prices fall 30% lower in the last three months, resulting in rock-bottom valuation ratios. The stock is trading at just 7 times forward earnings and 6.7 times trailing free cash flows, far below the norm in an industry that’s already packed with strong deep-discount investments. For example, IBM (NYSE:IBM) shares can be bought at 9.4 times forward earnings, and DXC Technology (NYSE:DXC) trades at 8.5 times its free cash flows. These are great value stocks, but Unisys is trading even lower.
