Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019


Retirement investors want sure things. There isn’t enough time to make up for stocks that just fall into the ground, never to return. So considering how awful energy has been for the past couple of years, it’s probably surprising to see “energy stocks” and “retirement” mentioned in the same vicinity.

Sustained low oil and natural gas prices have negatively impacted energy stocks. OK, that’s putting it mildly. Low prices have outright strangled some companies right out of business, and has made life miserable for the vast majority of the sector.

And considering many retirement investors were sucked in by the plentiful dividends in the energy sector, they know the pain. And they’re probably not too forgiving.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In 2019: Foot Locker, Inc.(FL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By JJ Kinahan]

    With retail earnings season pretty much over, one key takeaway is how many so-called “brick-and-mortar” stores have found ways to keep customers coming in the doors rather than simply pointing and clicking. Many retailers had very good same-store sales, and what that shows is the traffic is still there for them. The challenge for retailers now is converting traffic to buyers, and retailers appear to have gotten much more creative and much better at helping their clients. About 70 percent of specialty retailers—which are smaller, niche-type stores—beat Wall Street’s forecasts for the quarter, according to Bloomberg research, and the S&P 500 Specialty Retail Index has actually outperformed the S&P 500 Internet Index since mid-March. Strong results reported by specialty retailers like Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL) and Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) last week have helped buttress the sector.
