Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

An old trader once told me, “Trading is the hardest easy money you’ll ever make.” 

In theory, trading is easy enough — all you have to do is buy low and sell high, right? After all, there are thousands of books claiming to have all the information we’ll ever need.

In practice, however, trading is among the most difficult activities in the financial world. Despite the availability of a wealth of information, few do it well.

In fact, all that accessible information actually makes it harder to trade successfully. 

Think about that for a moment. 

If you could really win in the markets by simply buying stocks with low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, then we would all be successful. As an old trader also once told me, “To know what everyone knows is to know nothing.” If everyone has the same tools, it’s difficult to use them to gain an advantage over everyone else.

The secret to beating the market — and your fellow investors — is to use little-known indicators, which act like secret weapons for trading.

    Given the need for food and energy in order to support booming population growth in emerging markets, there’ll be a need for significant investment in sustainable water solutions. It’s a compelling long-term investment case, and I think Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR), Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) and Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR) are stocks well-placed to play the investment theme. One of the interesting things about water is that there’s no lack of it or difficulty in finding it; the problem is ensuring its quality (for both potable water and wastewater) and transporting it to the right places. This means there’s likely to be good long-term demand for companies serving the market.
