Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

GameStop (NYSE:GME) shareholders: Do you feel lucky? The brick-and-mortar video game retailer currently trades at a ridiculously low price-to-earnings ratio of 4.5 times next year’s estimated earnings, with a dividend yield over 10%. A valuation that low is usually ominous, suggesting investors believe GameStop’s earnings will rapidly decline in the coming years.

There’s reason to be nervous. GameStop is facing the daunting prospect of remaining a brick-and-mortar retailer of physical video games, in an age in which traffic is migrating online and more games are being released in downloadable formats. There isn’t really a great solution to the problem and the company announced in mid-June that it is “in exploratory discussions with third parties regarding a potential transaction.” Leading up to that announcement, But GameStop’s strategy seems to have been to prudently decrease its store footprint, while also diversifying into non-video game products.

In early June, GameStop unveiled its newest attempt at diversification, announcing it would begin selling comic books in a 40-store trial.

The price of wine is going up.

Global wine production slumped to its lowest level in 60 years in 2017, according to data from the International Organisation of Vine and Wine.

The most recent harvest produced 25 billion liters of wine, a decrease from 26.7 billion in 2016 and 27.6 billion in 2015. The decline was driven by weak harvests in key markets including Europe and South Africa.

The shortage has caused the wholesale price of basic wine in Italy to skyrocket 74% over the previous year, according to the European Commission. Prices are up 45% in Spain and over 10% in France.

Analysts said that producers, dealers and retailers will absorb some of the price hikes, but consumers will end up paying more — especially for cheaper bottles.

“The wine companies that are targeting very low prices … will be hit the worst, because their margins are very low,” said Stephen Rannekleiv, a global beverages strategist at Rabobank. “When prices go up, it puts a lot of strain on them.”

How does Baidu make money?

91% of Baidu’s revenue came fromonline marketing in fiscal 2016. However, revenue at the unit rose just 0.8% to $9.3 billion during the year, due to two main factors.

First, Chinese regulators forced Baidu to remove ads(particularly for healthcare products and services) which were deemed misleading.That crackdown was sparked by the death of a college student who pursued a questionable cancer treatment advertised on Baidu. Several years ago, rival search engine Qihoo 360 notably accused Baidu of generating 30% of its ad revenues fromfake healthcare ads. The resulting purge caused Baidu’s number of active online marketing customers to drop 18.6% annually to 452,000 during the fourth quarter, resulting in an 8.2% year-over-year decline in marketing revenues.
