Top Low Price Stocks To Own For 2019

It’s been almost eight years since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan rattled the global uranium and nuclear industries, but the fallout lingers to this day. All things considered, the management team at Cameco (NYSE:CCJ) has done a remarkable job navigating the persistent headwinds. Shares of the uranium miner and fuel fabricator are down only 2% in the past three years.

A tendency to make the correct and often difficult decisions time and again is paying off. For instance, last year Cameco made the difficult decision to suspend operations and lay off workers at one of the world’s largest uranium mines to preserve the balance sheet for the long haul. Its long-term supply contracts, entered into years ago, have allowed the business to realize some of the highest uranium selling prices in the world. And as those expire, management is holding off on signing new ones at the market’s current low prices in an attempt to force customers to properly value the atomic fuel source. Simply put, long-term thinking is dominating each decision.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

My Top Pick for speculators for the coming year is a biotech company, explains leading growth and income stock specialist Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) is prominent for its world-leading treatments for cystic fibrosis. Vertex is expected to outperform its peers in earnings growth through 2020.

Vertex is expected to report earnings per share of $2.27 in 2017 (December year-end), reflecting 195% earnings growth. This aggressive growth stock has a 2017 price/earnings ratio of 34.

As you know, pharmaceutical stocks got left behind in investors’ post-election race to own financial and basic industry stocks.

But the benefit of sector rotations is that we get to buy shares of healthy, growing companies while their prices are low.

In December, the company announced that it had come to a pricing and reimbursement agreement with Germany on Orkambi, a Vertex treatment for cystic fibrosis. This is bullish news.

Hot Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Amarin Corporation PLC(AMRN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By George Budwell]

    With numerous clinical and regulatory catalysts on the near-term horizon, biotech stocks should finish the year in strong fashion. This month, for instance, Amarin Corp. (NASDAQ:AMRN), CRISPR Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP), and Geron Corp. (NASDAQ:GERN) are all slated to roll out big news that may shape the industry’s outlook for the remainder of the year. 

  • [By Todd Campbell, Keith Speights, and Brian Feroldi]

    Investing in biotech stocks can be risky because clinical trial failures can lead to eye-popping drops in share prices. Nevertheless, the potential to benefit from revolutionary new medicines can make owning biotech stocks in a diversified portfolio smart. If you’re hunting for new biotech stocks to buy, these three Motley Fool investors think you should consider Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:LGND), Viking Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VKTX), and Amarin Corporation (NASDAQ:AMRN). Each of these companies has catalysts that could make now a good time to pick up shares.

    The stock market came into the new week on a negative note, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average seeing the biggest declines among the major benchmarks. Renewed trade fears and political concerns out of Washington seemed to worry investors, and some trepidation about the speed with which interest rates have risen in recent days also weighed on some portions of the market. Yet some individual companies had good news that sent their shares higher despite the downbeat mood generally. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN), and California Resources (NYSE:CRC) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) appears to be beefing up the sonic experience of its Echo line of digital assistants and smart speakers, giving Sonos (NASDAQ:SONO) and its investors something else to worry about. The Verge is reporting that Amazon has leaked a new subwoofer on its U.K. website, giving its Echo products greater versatility as a stereo or home theater appliance. 

The new Echo Sub can be wirelessly paired up with one or two Echo devices to enhance the audio quality of streams with a deep bass sound. Echo Sub is priced at 75 pounds, translating to a price point of less than $100. Sonos Sub — its own wireless subwoofer — retails for $699. Sonos Sub is larger, decoratively stylish, and likely superior when it comes to specs, but it’s hard to argue that Amazon filling a niche with a product that feeds its Alexa-propelled ecosystem at another ridiculously low price point won’t be bad news for Sonos.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018: JAKKS Pacific, Inc.(JAKK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    One under-$10 toy player that’s trending very close to triggering a major breakout trade is Jakks Pacific (JAKK), which is a producer and marketer of children’s toys and other consumer products. This stock has been destroyed by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 60%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Jakks Pacific, you’ll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last two months and change, with shares plunging from its high of $11.75 to its recent low of $4.82 a share. During that downtrend, shares of JAKK have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of JAKK look like they might be ready to see an end to its downside volatility in the short-term if the recent lows can hold. I believe this due to the fact that JAKK has started to move sideways and trend within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAKK if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $5.08 to $5.27 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 695,817 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JAKK will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5.68 to its 50-day moving average at $6.07 a share. Any high-volume move above its 50-day will then put $7 to $8 into range for shares of JAKK.

    Traders can look to buy JAKK off weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $4.87 to $4.82 a share. One can also buy JAKK off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.
