Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

No doubt, a strong portfolio typically includes stocks with robust fundamentals and solid track records. In a bull market, these investments provide healthy returns and protect against capital erosion. However, we should not overlook the benefits of owning penny stocks, either. The get-rich-quick angle with these picks is a real possibility. That’s why they continue to garner investor interest.

That said, penny stocks can also be a double-edged sword. Naturally, everyone is attracted to the low price tag. But it’s extremely important to understand which stocks are trading at a bargain and which ones are trading cheaply. The former can have real potential to super-charge your portfolio.

With the retail-trading frenzy we’ve seen this year, it seems like it doesn’t take much to move the needle for these low-priced picks. This is due in part to highly active social media forums who closely follow the sector, such as Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets. Ultimately, though, everyone is looking for massive profits from their investments.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    New York-based roadside-style burger joint Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK) recently put the final wrap on 2018, notching a rebound in same-store sales growth along with the rest of the restaurant industry. Sales looked good, but profit margins remained challenged — due in large part to a difficult business landscape for the dining-out segment of the economy. With headwinds expected to persist in the new year, there are better places for restaurant investors to put their money.
