Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

If youre trying to edge the overall stock market, you can take your chances by picking individual issues, or you could buy an actively managed mutual fund. But some exchange-traded funds may get the job done, too, and it wont cost you much to give them a shot.

Quiz: Test Your Knowledge of ETFs

ETFs are like mutual funds, but they trade like stocks. The biggest and cheapest ETFs mirror major benchmarks, such as Standard & Poors 500-stock index. Annual fees for many ETFs are extraordinarily lowas little as 3 cents per year for every $100 invested.

Yet you dont need to pay much more for ETFs that aim to beat the major bogeys. Such ETFs hold baskets of stocks that often look very different from the S&P 500. Some of these funds focus on shares of undervalued small companies. Others tilt toward stocks with upward share-price momentum, or companies with high-quality balance sheets. You can also buy low volatility ETFs that should hold up relatively well in a market downturn.
