In some cases, something you don’t really want becomes a value if the price gets low enough. That explains some fast-food value menus, and it contributes to the appeal of dollar stores.
But there are other items — think Miami Marlins tickets or a bottle of Mountain Dew — that you don’t want no matter the price. Something you don’t want doesn’t become a deal because it’s cheap. It becomes a burden you’re stuck with, like an ugly painting you have to hang up every time the aunt who gave it to you visits.
In my view, Frontier Communications (NASDAQ:FTR) is all of those terrible things. Yes, it’s cheap, but that should not tempt investors. Buying a stock at a low price makes sense if there’s a reasonable expectation it will rise. Frontier seems like a deal compared with high-flying T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS), but as I see it, that’s like saying a broken-down scooter is a good deal compared with a new Porsche.

However, my stock pick in the high-switching-costs category is not a bank, though it’s involved in financial services. I believe Intuit (NASDAQ:INTU) offers particularly “sticky” services. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps its two biggest products do: TurboTax and QuickBooks.

The Top Cryptocurrency Stories for Wednesday
Yesterday, one of Bitcoin’s biggest proponents once again released an extremely bullish outlook on the cryptocurrency. Billionaire investor Tim Draper said Tuesday that “Bitcoin is bigger than the Internet,” and he also said its influence will be even bigger than the Industrial Revolution, the Renaissance, and the Iron Age. The statement comes after he released a recent price target of $250,000 by 2022. Not everyone is buying into Bitcoin’s post-tax season rally. Bill Harris, the former CEO of PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL) and Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), sounded off Tuesday in an op-ed piece titled “Bitcoin Is the Greatest Scam in History.” Harris called the cryptocurrency a “colossal pump-and-dump scheme” that has no precedent on the world stage. Bitcoin proponents immediately took to social media and online blogs to refute Harris’ arguments. Forbes contributor Kyle Torpey vented that Harris’ focus was misguided and took special issue with his claim that “Bitcoin has no value.” The crypto world has identified JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon as public enemy No. 1. Computer security pioneer and cryptocurrency guru John McAfee called out Dimon for attempting – and failing – to “end crypto.” McAfee lobbed a slew of accusations at the big banker via Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR). Finally, it wouldn’t be another day in the cryptocurrency markets without another unprovoked threat to Bitcoin. The latest comes from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In a recent issue of the MIT Technology Review, writers presented three scenarios that could “destroy Bitcoin.” The scenarios include a “government takeover” of the cryptocurrency, the “tokenization of everything” that involves a massive influx of tokens and makes Bitcoin less valuable, and a mas

Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) returned to earnings growth last quarter, as the reduced corporate tax rate helped the upscale retailer post a double-digit increase in earnings per share.

And that is starting to benefit traditional department stores like Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) and Macy’s (NYSE:M). Both retailers have posted growth in comparable-store sales and have a strategy to increase their business online, where more people are choosing to shop.
Best Low Price Stocks To Buy For 2019: Zillow Group, Inc.(Z)
- [By Motley Fool Staff]
First, they review the second-quarter data from online real estate giant Zillow Group (NASDAQ:Z) (NASDAQ:ZG), which was bad, and its plan ahead, which looks scary. The company missed on revenue, and its guidance was weak, too, which would have been enough on its own to push shares lower. But the revelation that it was buying Mortgage Lenders of America did it no favors either. As Zillow moves into lending and house flipping, there’s a lot of fear among investors that it’s trying to elbow its way into some already crowded spaces where it’s strengths won’t translate.
