I have been writing investment commentary for over 20 years. And what I have come to clearly understand is that few things give investors more joy than buying stocks under $10.
Its like rummaging through the racks at TJ Maxx where 98% of the stuff is ugly and worthless. But ever now and then you come across that hidden gem. A low priced stock that explodes higher in price once other investors wake up to the fundamental virtue of the company.
The theory is great…the reality is a bit tougher to accomplish.
Meaning that most of these stocks at one time traded for more than $10. And what brought them down this lowly state is typically a string of bad earnings reports that had investors running away in droves.
So what makes a stock like Antares Pharma (ATRS) stand out?
The answer to that is a bit more evident when I share with you the main criteria used to unearth these top 10 stocks under $10.
- 1,928 with POWR Rating of A or B. You know that these are the timeliest stocks given all 4 hurdles they had to clear to qualify in this proprietary quantitative model. (Learn more about what’s inside the POWR Ratings here).
- 159 stocks remained that had a price of less than $10.
- 67 stocks that recently had an earnings beat. This was the main criteria applied to help insure that fundamentals were headed in the right direction. Note that 60% of the stocks on this list actually failed this vital test.
- 10 Stocks with the greatest upside from current price to average targets set on them by Wall Street analysts. Please remember that most target prices are only 10-20% above current levels. The only reason for an analyst to place such an extraordinarily high target on a stock is to feel that confident that is an accurate depiction of what it is truly worth.
At the end of the day we are looking at 10 stocks with a healthy blend of positive fundamentals + momentum + low price + extreme value. Check them out below.
|Company||Ticker||Market Cap ($mil)||EPS Surprise %||Price||Target||Upside %|
|Anavex Life Sci||AVXL||$179||7.14||$3.40||$12.00||252.94%|
|Quest Res Hldg||QRHC||$40||66.67||$2.58||$3.75||45.35%|
