Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

GameStop (NYSE:GME) shareholders: Do you feel lucky? The brick-and-mortar video game retailer currently trades at a ridiculously low price-to-earnings ratio of 4.5 times next year’s estimated earnings, with a dividend yield over 10%. A valuation that low is usually ominous, suggesting investors believe GameStop’s earnings will rapidly decline in the coming years.

There’s reason to be nervous. GameStop is facing the daunting prospect of remaining a brick-and-mortar retailer of physical video games, in an age in which traffic is migrating online and more games are being released in downloadable formats. There isn’t really a great solution to the problem and the company announced in mid-June that it is “in exploratory discussions with third parties regarding a potential transaction.” Leading up to that announcement, But GameStop’s strategy seems to have been to prudently decrease its store footprint, while also diversifying into non-video game products.

In early June, GameStop unveiled its newest attempt at diversification, announcing it would begin selling comic books in a 40-store trial.

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    Going into earnings season, one school of thought was that investors might be concerned more about companies’ forward guidance in some cases than in Q1 results. There was worry that perhaps the recent market turmoil and fears of a possible trade war could dampen some S&P 500 firms’ expectations for what the near future might bring. It’s less than a week since earnings began and guidance could still represent a speed bump in coming weeks, but so far it hasn’t been a problem. For instance, UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) raised fiscal year guidance Tuesday, and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) raised its revenue guidance. In other signs of general good cheer, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) raised its quarterly dividend, while Netflix (NFLX) reported big gains in subscriber growth. It’s still really early and things could change, but maybe some of those guidance fears could have been, shall we say, misguided?
