Hot Undervalued Stocks To Watch Right Now

Week after week in 2018, cryptocurrency investors have been hit by a stream of negative headlines about increasing regulation and cryptocurrency-related thefts, hacks and scams. But even in a market that's known for its volatility, the negative headlines don’t seem to be inducing as much extreme volatility as they have in the past.

Volatility Draining

Last month, a study by the Anti-Phishing Working Group revealed that a staggering $1.2 billion in cryptocurrency has been stolen in the past year alone, not including the 30 percent of digital currency recently stolen from Coinrail. Bitcoin prices initially dipped 10 percent in response to the news. But if the reaction seemed relatively muted compared to the volatile swings of late 2017, there may be good reason.
