Hot Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019

When fear and volatility rear their ugly heads, investors will traditionally turn to more conservative investments — such as gold. Presumably, this is what happened during the bitterly fought presidential campaign. In 2016, the price of gold, which ended the year up about 8%, had climbed as much as 28% at one point.

Similarly, many gold stocks enjoyed quite the ride last year — rides that have extended into the new year, leaving some companies trading at seriously low prices. Of course, this doesn’t mean these companies are worthy of investment. So let’s grab our pickaxes and see what we can uncover.

Yamana Gold, for example, recorded non-cash impairment charges of $2.6 billion. In the company’s annual report, management acknowledged that “the largest contributor to the impairment was the writedown of values relating to exploration land and potential ounces.”
