Best Value Stocks To Watch Right Now

Rather than fitting completely into one mold or another, most investors are attracted to a blend of stocks, with some qualifying as growth investments and others meeting value-based criteria. Today, I’m taking a closer look at a few promising companies that belong firmly on the growth side of the spectrum. 

Sure, these stocks have soared higher in recent months as investor confidence in their businesses has grown. But in my view, lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU), Wayfair (NYSE:W), and iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) have plenty of room for additional long-term gains.

Lululemon, the premium-sports-apparel specialist, has been putting up some head-turning operating numbers recently. Sales growth soared past management’s targets for the second time in a row last quarter, with revenue jumping 19%.

Gross profit margin leapt to 55% of sales, in fact, from 51% a year ago.
