Top Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019

Here at Zacks, we don’t generally classify stocks as “cheap” or “expensive”, and rather than looking at the stock’s face value, we have a system that puts an emphasis on earnings estimate revisions to find stocks that will hopefully be winners for investors.

That being said, low-priced stocks can be attractive to smaller investors that can’t necessarily afford large stakes in companies with higher priced stocks.

When looking at these low-priced stocks, we can look at the same trends in growth, value, and momentum and apply the Zacks Rank to properly analyze the potential that these companies have. We are also keenly aware of the latest sector trends and make sure to cover all of the hottest industries.

Today we’ve highlighted three stocks that fall into the broad “technology” sector. Each of these three stocks is currently trading for less than $10 per share and holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) or better. Take a look at the strong estimate revision activity and other factors that make these tech companies stick out right now:

Top Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019: Berkshire Hathaway Inc.(BRK.A)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Dimon, 62, has reputation as a leader in corporate America, having served on President Donald Trump’s now-defunct Strategic and Policy Forum of top executives and recently teaming up with Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A) and Jeff Bezos’s Amazon.com (AMZN) to develop a new healthcare company that will attempt to address the industry’s challenges.

    In his “No-Huddle Offense” segment, Cramer celebrated the annual Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)    (BRK.B) shareholder weekend by taking a quick peek at Warren Buffett’s five largest holdings.

  • [By ]

    Billionaire investor and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)  , Warren Buffett, has never been a fan of cryptocurrency, but his latest assault on the digital asset is arguably his toughest yet. In an interview on CNBC Monday, Buffett said bitcoin is “probably rat poison squared.” Buffett had previously argued that bitcoin is a gamble more than it is an investment and that the cryptocurrency would almost surely come to a “bad ending.” On Monday, Buffett said, “[Bitcoin] itself is creating nothing. When you’re buying nonproductive assets, all you’re counting on is the next person is going to pay you more because they’re even more excited about another next person coming along.” Buffett’s comments, which were made after Berkshire’s annual shareholder meeting on Saturday, followed a similar sentiment from his second-in-command, Charlie Munger, who said crypto trading is “just dementia.”

Best Growth Stocks For 2019

Consumer spending on game consoles increased by a third in 2017 as the top makers all released new products. Total spending rose 18% on hardware, games and services to $41 billion, the highest total spending on gaming since 2011.

The Nintendo Switch lifted the Japan-based console maker’s share of the market to 22%, up nine points year over year, while Microsoft Corp.

Analyst Piers Harding-Rolls of IHS Markit said:

We are now approaching a tipping point in consumer behavior, where the digital share of full game sales has started to accelerate away from the transitional norms. This accelerating picture and the rapid shift to games-as-a-service monetization models is fueling growth in content spending.

    Starbuck’s Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors. The reason why gold is going to get a nice boost: ongoing trade tensions between the United States and the rest of the globe.

    Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE: BWP) — While not directly tied to the price of oil due to its focus on the natural gas sector, Boardwalk does fall into the energy column. While the company’s revenue and EPS growth is lackluster and the yield (3.27%) is way below that of a typical energy MLP, the idea behind owning Boardwalk units is the deep discount of the actual assets of the company. The stock trades at just 50 cents on the dollar to the stated book value of the company and, as the company’s wheelhouse is storage and movement of natural gas and natural gas liquids (a now booming U.S. export business), real value will be unlocked. It’s just a matter of time.
