Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2019

Tim Melvin

When it comes to our investing toolkit, all we really need at our disposal are the hammer and the nail.

In other words, you don’t need fancy bells and whistles to find undervalued companies ripe for market-crushing profits.

You don’t need a broker who’s probably ripping you off, and you especially don’t need a Bloomberg terminal that costs $24,000 a year and takes up half your office.

All you need are the basics, most of which are free, publicly available, and right at your fingertips.

That’s right: Independent research does it every time.

I’ve mentioned here before that publicly available 13F filings are one of the best tools retail investors can use to find unreasonably lucrative investment opportunities and gain and hold a profitable, sustainable edge.

I like to dig through these documents filed by money management firms every quarter to see exactly what the Wall Street bigwigs are buying and selling, as well as measure how well they’re performing compared to the previous quarter.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2019: Diana Shipping inc.(DSX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That helps to explain why shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) and Diana Shipping (NYSE:DSX) are up 36% and 28%, respectively, since the beginning of April. Both performances easily beat the 5% return of the S&P 500 in that span. However, even the healthy gains made recently don’t come close to erasing the losses accumulated in recent years, as both shipping leaders are down over 34% in the last three-year period.
