Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019

Given the S&P 500’s 16% gain over the past 12 months and its 50% rise over the last three years, it’s fair to say stocks have performed very well recently. While such a strong run-up is nice for investors’ portfolio values, it makes finding good stocks at reasonable prices a more difficult task.

But one market leader with strong fundamentals surprisingly continues to trade at a very conservative valuation. That company is none other than Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) — parent company of ESPN; Disney theme parks; and a thriving studio business that includes movies from Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Disney. In a market like this, Disney offers investors a way to buy a quality company while allocating money to one of the few strong market leaders left with a conservative valuation.

An Overview
Disney’s recently reported third-quarter results drive home why Disney stock is such a steal at just 14 times earnings. The company’s fundamentals relative to its conservative valuation make the media giant appear undervalued.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019

As if finding bargain-priced stocks in a sky-high market werent difficult enough, investors who hunt for undervalued names face the threat of succumbing to value traps. These stocks masquerade as temporarily beaten-down shares of promising companies, but are, in fact, trading at depressed prices because of long-term problems with the business. The difference between true value plays and value traps becomes apparent in hindsight: The former eventually bounce back, while value traps continue to sag.

Picking the winners is often more art than science. Start by asking yourself two questions, advises John Linehan, who manages a number of value-oriented mutual funds at T. Rowe Price. First, do the companys problems seem fixable within a time frame you can live with? If the answer is yes, the stock deserves further consideration. Second, imagine that the company didnt exist, then ask yourself if people would care. If the answer is no, says Linehan, youre probably looking at a company without staying power.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    The biotechs and emerging pharma havebeen under pressure from politicians attacking drug prices. That doesn’t mean that there are not some big winners out there. Sometimes the biggest winners are companies most investors have never heard of. Even if you have been a biotech and emerging pharma investor for years, chances are high that you would have never heard of a small outfit called Apricus Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ: APRI).

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Buy For 2019: Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Perhaps the largest ETF dedicated to tracking French stocks should be getting more attention. In a year in which ETFs tracking the PIIGS economies are struggling, EWQ has been solid. The France ETF's 2.7 percent year-to-date gain is slightly ahead of the comparable Germany ETF and more than twice as good as the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK).

  • [By Tom Aspray, Senior Editor, MoneyShow.com]

    The US stock market is still leading with the Spyder Trust (SPY) up 18.6%, while the European markets (VGK) are now up close to 10% for the year, as they have gotten a nice boost in the past three weeks.

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Here is a dichotomy. Global small-caps are performing admirably. The WisdomTree Europe SmallCap Dividend Fund (NYSE: DFE) is an example of a Europe ETF that is defying some unfavorable trends. DFE is down 3.5 percent year-to-date. That sounds bad, but it is far better than what investors have been treated to with diversified, large-cap Europe ETFs. The Vanguard Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK) and the iShares Europe ETF (NYSE: IEV) are down an average of 5.3 percent this year.

  • [By Todd Shriber, ETF Professor]

    Still, there are instances of limited appetite for diversified Europe ETFs, particularly those with significant U.K. exposure. The Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSE: VGK) hasn't added (or lost) any capital since June 20. That ETF devotes 31.4 percent of its weight to U.K. stocks.

Through this partnership, these companies are planning to tackle and develop novel antisense drug candidates for a broad range of neurological diseases.

  • [By Brian Orelli]

    While that’s fine for clinical trials, it may make it difficult for Ionis’ drugs to compete with drugs that work as well but don’t have side effects that need to be monitored. Of course, for Spinraza, which Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) and Ionis recently got approved for spinal muscular atrophy, side effects aren’t an issue because there aren’t any other treatment options at the moment.
