Hot Undervalued Stocks To Own Right Now

There has been a recent pullback in tech stocks, particularly in the chip sector and this has prompted me to look for some buying opportunities. This pullback gave me an opportunity to buy Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (GOOGL), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Micron Technology (MU), which I think are inexpensive large cap tech stocks, but I also have been looking for even bigger bargains in much smaller companies. At the end of each year, I sift through many small cap stocks to find bargains that have been hit by end-of-the-year tax-loss selling. With all this in mind, a stock I have been watching for quite a while now seems to be a great year-end buy, due to the recent tech stock pullback and tax-loss selling. This stock appears significantly undervalued, the balance sheet is very strong, growth is expected to increase significantly, and it could be poised for a significant rebound as tax-loss selling fades. Let’s take a closer look below:

Aehr Test Systems (AEHR) is a small but high potential tech company that is based in Fremont, California. This company makes systems that can burn-in and functionally test chip devices such as digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers, sensors, optical devices and more. The products made by this company reduce the cost of testing and perform reliability screening for many electronic devices which are becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives. The trend towards self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, robotics, and mobility are likely to lead to secular growth for many semiconductor firms and the companies that supply them.

Best Growth Stocks For 2019

Emerging market stocks fell deeper into correction territory on Friday and were on track for their worst week in nearly two months.

But some see opportunity if you have the stomach.

“These emerging markets stocks are always going to be a higher volatility play, so you have to be willing to deal with both the ups and the downs,” Mark Tepper, president and founder of Strategic Wealth Partners, told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Thursday. “There’s a lot of value in emerging markets stocks right now.”

Exposure to emerging markets is a sure bet on the consumer, Tepper added.

“The emerging market consumer is still one of the most powerful forces in investing,” he said. “The growth of the middle class in China and India, it just represents a ton of potential.”

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Buy Right Now

Back in late August 2017, we pointed to a valuation discrepancy with Home Depot (HD) as a reason to buy Lowe’s (LOW) stock. Since then, LOW stock has staged an epic rally, soaring 43% higher vs. a mere 15% gain for the S&P 500. That 43% rally also is markedly better than HD’s 34% rise in that timeframe.

We think the rally in LOW stock will continue. While we believe both LOW and HD shares will continue to outperform the market thanks to a strengthening economy and hurricane rebuilding efforts, we further believe that LOW stock will outperform HD stock given its discounted valuation, bigger tax rate, and activist investor interest.

Home improvement stocks are a great place to be right now. The home improvement industry tends to do well when the economy is doing well (if the economy is doing well, consumers are more likely to dole out extra money for home improvements), and the US economy is on fire right now. US GDP grew by 3.3% last quarter, its best rate in three years and its second 3%-plus growth quarter in a row. That is the first time since 2014 that US GDP grew by 3% or more in back-to-back quarters.

Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Invest In 2019

The most popular online exchange for trading digital currencies is generating a surge in customer complaints this year even as investors are lured by a dramatic rise in prices.

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has received at least 293 complaints about Coinbase Inc., according to data reviewed by Bloomberg.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.(CHKP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    For investors looking for a cybersecurity stock, I think a bigger security company like Palo Alto Networks or Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) would be a better option. At this juncture, I think FireEye’s high expenditures and sluggish revenue growth outweigh the potential benefits of buying the stock.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.s (NASDAQ: CHKP) short interest decreased to 8.24 million shares from the previous reading of 8.45 million. Shares were trading at $102.91, in a 52-week range of $95.03 to $119.20.

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) plies its trade in the fast-growing cybersecurity market — a market that’s expected to hit $96 billion in revenue this year, an increase of 8% over 2017, accordingto Gartner’s estimates. However, one look at the cybersecurity specialist’s recent performance indicates that it hasn’t been able to capitalize on that vast potential.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd.(TSM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    DigiTimes just published an overview of the cutting-edge chip manufacturing landscape. In the overview, the company says that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) is set to start mass production on its 7-nanometer chip manufacturing process in the second quarter of 2018, with an enhanced version of that technology going into production in early 2019.

    With this delay, Intel has fallen solidly behind its largest peer,Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company(NYSE:TSM), which began mass production of chips using its 7nm technology (roughly equivalent to Intel’s 10nm technology) earlier this month.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    The claim from Intel seems questionable at best. To illustrate, let’s dive deep into when Intel has brought products to market on new technologies and when its competition –Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company(NYSE:TSM)and Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) — have.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) is one of my favorite publicly traded chip companies. The company is a contract chip manufacturer, which means it develops the tools and technologies to allow other chip companies to design chips that TSMC ultimately manufactures for those companies.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Own Right Now

New state-sponsored retirement savings plans proposed in seven states could be in jeopardy before they even begin.

Congress took the first step Wednesday to roll back an Obama-era rule that paved the way for such plans.

California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington have all approved plans and are working on rolling them out. Though the details vary by state, the basic model is to automatically enroll private sector workers who don’t have a retirement plan through their jobs into a state-sponsored IRA, with a provision to opt out.

Oregon was expected to be the first to launch a pilot program this summer.

But the House passed two resolutions Wednesday which — if also approved by the Senate — would put the state retirement plans at risk.

The resolutions overturn rules that exempted state-sponsored plans from having to comply with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which sets minimum standards for retirement plan providers. At the time, the Obama Administration said uncertainty about complying with ERISA was a “roadblock” to a broader adoption of state plans.

Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

Ford (NYSE:F) is known for its attractive valuation, it currently trades at around 7 times its 2017 projected earnings and has an attractive dividend yield of 5.36 percent. It also has a very low price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) compared to most other companies on the S&P 500. The stock trades at around $11 during the time I am writing this. However, after digging a little deeper, I have found that the future looks bearish for Ford.

The automobile industry is known to be a very cyclical industry and I, along with many other people, believe that the cycle has peaked after years of high demand. We are witnessing a downtrend in automobile demand. In March, US auto sales fell 1.6 percent; 1.56 million cars and trucks were sold in March, falling below the projected sales of 1.62 million cars and trucks. Sales are down 1.6 percent compared to the same month last year. Ford only sold 236,250 cars; this is a 7 percent decrease in sales compared to the prior month.
