Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now


Growth versus value investing is one of the major debates in the investment world.  Growth stocks seem to have outperformed their value counterparts over the past few years. But the winning streak of growth investing took a hit this year with value stocks regaining lost glory.

It is currently speculated that value investing will likely continue its winning run in the upcoming years. Hence, adding potential stocks to one’s portfolio might prove to be an ideal option in the current scenario.


Value vs. Growth Investing: Long-Drawn Debate

Value investors seek to invest in stocks that are believed to be trading at a discounted value. Investors look for favorable value ratios including low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/B) ratios to identify potential value stocks. While a significant number of these stocks are also expected to come with solid dividend payments, these stocks are also expected to moderate growth prospects.

    Shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals gained 5.2% to $125.59, while the S&P 500 rose 0.1%.

    Barclays analyst Geoff Meacham and team explain why they upgraded Alexion Pharmaceuticals:

    We are upgrading shares ofAlexion to Overweight and increasing our PT to $155 from $150 on an improved outlook for 2017. Specifically, we see lower FX and fewer macroeconomic risks to the core base business over the next 12 months. We also expect approval of Soliris in refractory gMG by YE17 following a planned regulatory submission in 1Q17, which could add another growth lever in early 2018 at the latest. Our upgrade is not a call on the recent 10-Q delay, which according to our discussions with management has to do with an investigation into sales practices following allegations by a former employee. We also do not anticipate major restatements of historical Soliris sales due to the investigation. Furthermore, this is not a call on Kanuma or the Synageva deal, as we have cut our Kanuma sales in our P&L and reduced its contribution in our NPV valuation. Indeed, we would expect minimal weakness inAlexion shares if the company were to take a write-down on Synageva during 2017, but this is not core to our investment thesis. In sum, our bullishness onAlexion shares is due to: 1) lessened FX and macroeconomic headwinds in 2017, 2) near-term Soliris growth from likely regulatory approval in refractory gMG, and 3) attractive upside potential from current levels as the pipeline including line extensions for Soliris and new assets such as 1210 mature.


    Alexion Pharmaceuticals’ market capitalization rose to $28.2 billion today from $26.8 billion yesterday. It reported net income of $144 million on sales of $2.5 billion in 2015.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now: Cencosud S.A.(CNCO)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    Today, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting mid cap emerging markets retail stock Cencosud SA (NYSE: CNCO):

    There are a couple of things going on here to lead us to a bearish conclusion, but the biggest of these is today’s cross under the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.46. For a brief while it looked like this long-term moving average line was going to play a support role – as it often does – but today’s second selling effort broke its back. Now that the floor’s out of the way, the selling just got a lot easier.

    “Right now, we are the only Latin American company in the retail segment, and the only ones with a real distribution chain assembled, selling in stores like Staples and others,” Caporale explained. “Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS)’s MakerBot had a few experiences in retail, but did not do very well: Cencosud SA (NYSE: CNCO)’s Jumbo supermarkets bought three printers [for its Argentina branch] and did not manage to sell any. The thing is, their machine costs about 90,000 Argentine pesos [about $6,000], and our machine goes for 32,000 pesos [about $2100].”

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now: Toro Company (The)(TTC)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Mitchell Clark]

     The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.

    It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.

    Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):


    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.
