Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Photographer: Saul Martinez/Bloomberg

A strategic mistake made six years ago by celebrity CEO Ron Johnson continues to haunt popular retailer JC Penney, as evidenced by the ongoing sluggish sales growth and store closings that have made the company smaller—a fraction of what it once  was.

Meanwhile, investors have been bailing out from the company’s stock, which trades in the middle single digits — a long way from the upper 30s, where it was trading back in 2012. 

JC Penney’s woes began with a change in the retailer’s pricing strategy –replacement of coupon sales with everyday low prices.

The old pricing strategy has been popular among retailers, because it hypes shoppers, making them feel smart and encouraging them to talk with other consumers about it. That’s how hype and buzz for merchandise begins and spreads in the shopper community.

Top Casino Stocks To Own Right Now

&l;p&g;Imagine you are at a roulette table in a casino and are given an opportunity for your lifetime savings of $500,000. You have two choices, A and B. If you choose option A, you will receive a monthly paycheck of $2,000 for the rest of your life. With option B, you could receive a monthly paycheck of $5,000 for the rest of your life.

The choice seems obvious, right? Not quite. If you read it correctly, option B does not offer the certainty of option A. The word &a;lsquo;could&a;rsquo; expresses possibility &a;ndash; and only possibility. That means there is a risk involved &a;ndash; a spin on the wheel. If it lands on red, you will receive the $5,000 monthly paycheck for the rest of your life, but if it lands on black, you receive nothing. Now, what do you do? Is the reward worth the risk?

That is the BIG question! Since I began focusing on income planning in 2005, four out of five clients I meet face this decision: the known versus the unknown, the certainty of a paycheck versus the possibility of making more money in the market. We refer to it as &a;lsquo;income planning&a;rsquo; versus &a;lsquo;income guessing.&a;rsquo;

    Several high-yielding dividend stocks have taken it on the chin this year due to a sell-off in the stock market and rising interest rates. That one-two punch has hit pipeline stocks the hardest, with several top-notch companies tumbling by a double-digit percentage since the start of the year. Three that stand out as excellent options to consider buying now that they’re on sale are Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), and Enbridge (NYSE:ENB).

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Either low-income Americans became rich this Black Friday, or Wal-Mart’s (NYSE:WMT) marketers do not know what they are doing.

For years, $133,653 Cartier watches and expensive jewelry were sold in upper scale stores, where high income Americans prefer to shop on Black Friday. 

This year, Cartier watches are being sold on the Walmart.com site.

But who will buy them? Will high income Americans trade the upscale store for Wal-Mart’s site? That sounds very unlikely to me. Shopping for luxury items is usually more about the experience of shopping rather than about price.

What about Wal-Mart’s low-income shoppers? That’s unlikely, too, as they cannot afford items that sell at a hefty multiple of their annual income. Besides, some of Wal-Mart’s shoppers do not even use credit cards, so how can they purchase $133,653 watches on-line?

For more than three decades, Wal-Mart ruled the US retailing industry. Its large stores and everyday low prices were too much for smaller neighborhood stores and supermarkets. Result? They went out of business shortly after Wal-Mart invaded their turf.

    We saw this pattern with 3M (MMM) , one of my favorite stocks, which got crushed, falling from $177 to $173 because of what the headline writers called a weak consumer-products division. Sure, you can pull a line and see an unexpected decline. But declines do not necessarily mean weakness, which, to me, connotes a failure to have the right product and flagging sales. If you go listen to the conference call, you discover that the weakness had to do with a particularly retailer’s troubles. Sure, you could argue, why do we trust this company? I come back and say, you trust them because CEO Inge Thulin has been money in the bank for years and there’s no reason not to trust him.
