Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2018

There has been a recent pullback in tech stocks, particularly in the chip sector and this has prompted me to look for some buying opportunities. This pullback gave me an opportunity to buy Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (GOOGL), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Micron Technology (MU), which I think are inexpensive large cap tech stocks, but I also have been looking for even bigger bargains in much smaller companies. At the end of each year, I sift through many small cap stocks to find bargains that have been hit by end-of-the-year tax-loss selling. With all this in mind, a stock I have been watching for quite a while now seems to be a great year-end buy, due to the recent tech stock pullback and tax-loss selling. This stock appears significantly undervalued, the balance sheet is very strong, growth is expected to increase significantly, and it could be poised for a significant rebound as tax-loss selling fades. Let’s take a closer look below:

Aehr Test Systems (AEHR) is a small but high potential tech company that is based in Fremont, California. This company makes systems that can burn-in and functionally test chip devices such as digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers, sensors, optical devices and more. The products made by this company reduce the cost of testing and perform reliability screening for many electronic devices which are becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives. The trend towards self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, robotics, and mobility are likely to lead to secular growth for many semiconductor firms and the companies that supply them.
