Best Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now

On Dec. 4, 2017, I authored the first of what would turn out to be many articles highlighting Geron Corporation’s (NASDAQ:GERN) rather compelling risk-to-reward ratio for potential investors. At the time, the stock was trading under $1.90 a share. 

Not long afterwards, I would go on to add Geron to my personal biotech portfolio. The core reason was that this stock appeared to me to be grossly undervalued at the time — that is, relative to imetelstat’s healthy commercial prospects in the high-value blood cancer space. The drug’s clinical program, after all, was being handled by none other than Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and the blood cancer market is among the fastest growing in all of healthcare.

Best Undervalued Stocks To Buy Right Now: Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (SSNLF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Joe Tenebruso]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) dominate the global smartphone market. Samsung is the leader in terms of number of phones sold, while Apple commands the lion’s share of the industry’s profits. And their leading positions in this $500 billion market have allowed them to deliver handsome gains to investors over the years.

    Autonomous driving is going to be an interesting development for GM. Although most of the attention goes towards Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Tesla on this front, probably every automaker is working on this technology. The automakers are extremely well positioned to deliver the bodies. A development to watch is whether the automakers are going to botch this shift like electronic companies did with mobile. Remember BlackBerry (NYSE:BB), Nokia (NYSE:NOK) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF). All these devices now run some version of Android.

    About Venmo. I don’t think it’s the game changer that many in the PayPal investment community think it is. It’s growing for sure but for me it is yet unproven and is the one point where Apple Pay (NASDAQ:AAPL), Samsung Pay (OTC:SSNLF) and potentially Square (NYSE: SQ) can actually land a punch. $9.4 billion in transaction volume last quarter and making it available in around two million U.S. retailers are signs of a growing business, but whether it will be used for retail purchases by its user base remains to be seen. I could be surprised on the upside in the coming 3-6 quarters. But as long as the company isn’t revealing the number of its users I won’t be holding my breath and including this in the factors that can contribute to sustained growth.

    HP management said there are two trends really beginning to take shape within the printing industry which they believe will benefit the company. The first trend is that in a flat industry there probably isn’t enough room for as many players (management identified 14) as currently exist. Weisler believes the industry will naturally consolidate, in part through acquisition, over time. For instance, Weisler highlighted HP’s acquisition of Samsung’s (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) printing business last year for $1.05 billion as a particularly savvy move, one that did far more than just capture additional market share for HP. The deal also gave HP access to Samsung’s 6,500 printing patents and a pool of about 1,300 expert engineers.

    According to the report, 36% of U.S. mobile phones activated were Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhones. Apple tied with Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF), which offers mobile phones across a much wider range of price points.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

You have an investing advantage over Warren Buffett. No, seriously, you really do.

Buffett has admitted that he regrets not buying Google parent Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Amazon.com years ago. And he’s only been a big buyer of Apple stock in the past few years. Apple gained more than 2,000% in the 10 years before Buffett jumped aboard.

The reality is that Buffett doesn’t invest in what he doesn’t understand. That means he can miss out on some of the hottest trends — at least for a while. And therein lies your advantage: gaining an understanding of trends relatively early on and buying the best stocks to profit from those trends. Here are three hot trends that Buffett is missing out on, along with investing ideas for each one.

Hot Value Stocks To Buy Right Now

Here at Zacks, we don’t generally classify stocks as “cheap” or “expensive”, and rather than looking at the stock’s face value, we have a system that puts an emphasis on earnings estimate revisions to find stocks that will hopefully be winners for investors.

That being said, low-priced stocks can be attractive to smaller investors that can’t necessarily afford large stakes in companies with higher priced stocks.

When looking at these low-priced stocks, we can look at the same trends in growth, value, and momentum and apply the Zacks Rank to properly analyze the potential that these companies have. We are also keenly aware of the latest sector trends and make sure to cover all of the hottest industries.

Today we’ve highlighted three stocks that fall into the broad “technology” sector. Each of these three stocks is currently trading for less than $10 per share and holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) or better. Take a look at the strong estimate revision activity and other factors that make these tech companies stick out right now:

Some analysts use the term &q;strong buy&q;&a;nbsp;to get page views or excite readers, but I consider a strong buy to mean the following:

&l;/p&g;&l;blockquote&g;&l;strong&g;&a;ldquo;Strong Buy&l;/strong&g;&a;nbsp;means that I am recommending a high-quality REIT that is trading at a wider margin of safety. Recognizing principal preservation is critical, my recommendation is telegraphing readers that the company is a blue chip on sale.&a;rdquo;&l;/blockquote&g;

In my monthly newsletter (&l;em&g;Forbes&l;/em&g; Real Estate Investor) I have labeled six REITs as strong buys and I just upgraded two others (as &l;span&g;strong buy&l;/span&g;s). As we enter 2018, most analysts have suspected that the fear of rising rates had already been priced in and nobody (including me) suspected that there would be an extreme February selloff in REIT-land.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks For 2019: Xylem Inc.(XYL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lee Samaha]

    Given the need for food and energy in order to support booming population growth in emerging markets, there’ll be a need for significant investment in sustainable water solutions. It’s a compelling long-term investment case, and I think Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR), Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) and Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR) are stocks well-placed to play the investment theme. One of the interesting things about water is that there’s no lack of it or difficulty in finding it; the problem is ensuring its quality (for both potable water and wastewater) and transporting it to the right places. This means there’s likely to be good long-term demand for companies serving the market.
