Top 5 Value Stocks To Own Right Now

It’s easy to understand the lure of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Getting in on the ground floor of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and earning a massive return in a very short time is certainly appealing. Unfortunately, the volatility and the much greater risk of these unvetted new asset classes can also result in significant losses, as investors have recently learned. After peaking at over $19,000 per share in December, bitcoin has lost nearly 70% of its value, recently falling below $6,000. 

There are other more traditional ways to increase your odds of achieving noteworthy gains, like tapping into changes in consumer behavior or investing early in ongoing demographic shifts. With that in mind, we asked three Fool.com contributors to choose companies that they believed had significant untapped potential. Read on to find out why they chose Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), JD.com (NASDAQ:JD), and iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ).

Top Undervalued Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Our new silver price forecast for 2017 shows prices moving higher, despite headwinds in the short term. In fact, we see silver prices climbing by double digits in the next six months…

Some of these headwinds include a rallying dollar and an inflated stock market, according to Money Morning Resource Specialist Peter Krauth.

“The investing herd has been flocking to these asset classes,” he said, “discarding silver along the way.”

But silver is also largely undervalued right now, Krauth says. The gold-silver ratio is currently at 70, which means that it takes nearly 70 ounces of silver to buy one gold ounce. According to Kitco, this ratio is up from 55 nearly five years ago. That suggests silver’s value has been depressed for some time.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE: CTL) is a telecom stock that pays its investors more than just a high dividend yield to own the stock. It’s a crazy-high yield of over 14%. Telecom stocks that pay such yields are often shunned by analysts because the earnings and cash flows are hard to model, and it’s increasingly harder to know where the future earnings will come from to continually support those dividends.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    An issue of Centurylink Inc (NYSE:CTL) bonds rose 1.8% against their face value during trading on Thursday after an insider sold shares in the company. The high-yield issue of debt has a 7.75% coupon and will mature on February 15, 2031. The bonds in the issue are now trading at $93.50 and were trading at $92.00 last week. Price changes in a company’s bonds in credit markets often anticipate parallel changes in its share price. Specifically, Director Glen F. Post III sold 150,000 shares of the company’s stock in a transaction that occurred on Monday, August 13th. The stock was sold at an average price of $22.00, for a total value of $3,300,000.00.

    Likewise, the massive sums that cloud giants are spending on both AI hardware and talent, together with the huge quantities of user data they have for feeding their training systems, make it tough for smaller rivals to launch competing services. And the giant data center build-outs being carried out by public cloud service giants Amazon, Microsoft and Google make it tough for smaller rivals such as Oracle (ORCL) and CenturyLink (CTL)  — rivals that are also generally at a disadvantage in terms of the number of features they provide — to keep pace.

    Buying into regional telcos has been a gutsy undertaking for typically risk-averse income investors. Yield chasers have been smacked around by imploding payouts. But one of the niche’s less-troubled players is starting to stand out from the problematic pack. Shares of CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) hit 11-month highs last week after the company posted encouraging financial results and boosted its guidance — and those levels will stand as 52-week highs later this week once we lap last year’s mid-August peak.

    Regional telcos have been a hotbed of unsustainable dividend declarations. Frontier Communications (NASDAQ:FTR) is the latest player in this niche to nix its quarterly check. A payout ratio north of 100% isn’t always fatal. CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) has posted a triple-digit payout ratio every year since 2011, and it has only reduced its distribution rate once in that time. However, the closer a stock is to a payout ratio of 100%, the more likely that dividend is to be reduced or eliminated if earnings growth is going the wrong way.

    Greenfield African countries like Burkina Faso are starting to look very attractive for mining as the South African mining sector continues to face numerous headwinds. This week, shares of major South African mining stock like DRDGOLD Limited (NYSE: DRD), Gold Fields Limited (NYSE: GFI), Harmony Gold Mining Co (NYSE: HMY) and Sibanye-Stillwater (NYSE: SBGL) fell off amid news about further company retrenchments and a warning from the ruling African National Congress (ANC) against doing more job cuts.

Best Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

It’s not so easy to size up Walmart (NYSE:WMT) these days. For decades, the retailer’s strategy was as reliable as the sunrise: Open up hundreds of supercenters every year, keep costs low, and offer customers “everyday low prices.”

For a long time, that strategy drove consistent profit growth and propelled the big-box chain to retail dominance, but like many things in business, it worked until it didn’t. The rise of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and e-commerce disrupted Walmart’s leadership and undermined the strength of both its pricing strategy and brick-and-mortar expansion.

Under CEO Doug McMillon, who took the helm in 2014, Walmart has reinvented itself. The retailer has essentially stopped opening new stores, instead investing that capital into paying employees better, providing more training, cleaning up stores, and eliminating out-of-stockages — all in an effort to improve the in-store experience. The company has also aggressively pivoted to e-commerce, quickly adding grocery pickup stations at its stores, expecting to have more than 2,000 of them by the end of this year. It boosted its exposure to e-commerce by acquiring Jet.com for $3.3 billion and followed that up with smaller e-commerce acquisitions like Bonobos and Modcloth.
