  • Deal Or No Deal: 8 Undervalued Stocks Under 10 Dollars With Rising EPS 0 comments

    We've written a lot about how good economic news can often be bad for stocks. Particularly in periods of historically low interest rates, like we're in now, the stock market usually declines on good news.

    Good economic news usually signals that other assets classes will start to get more valuable.

    That's possibly why the market has been so confused in the last couple of days. GDP numbers were pretty bad, and suggested slowing growth. As a result stocks are moving without much of a discernible pattern.

    However that was also expected to a certain extent as the winter slowed consumer spending. In addition, the lingering situation in Ukraine has made predicting the Fed's next move even more difficult than usual.

    Are things so bad that Janet Yellen could start to backtrack on the tapering program? Or will rates go up assuming the economy will start kicking over the summer?

    If you're bullish on stocks going forward now's a good time to take advantage of valuations that have come down since January. We decided to screen for undervalued stocks under $10 dollars by looking for EPS/Price mismatches.

    Mismatches happen when a company grows its earnings per share faster than its stock price. Since stocks trade heavily on earnings, a mis-match can often suggest that a stock might be undervalued. Starting with a universe of all the companies trading between $5-10, we screened for EPS/Price mismatches, and found 8.
