Top 10 Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now


The current market sell-off may offer good buying opportunities for selected companies. In my point of view, one such company that could be added in the portfolio is Ichor Holdings (ICHR). The company operates within the semiconductor industry that is set to benefit from positive secular trends. And despite that, many companies trade at very low valuations on investor concern of cyclicality.

Semiconductors have been very volatile in revenue growth, profitability and consequently share performance. Hence, investors should be aware of all the risks. But, the company is very cheap. It is trading at forward-looking P/E of 5 and most analysts rate the company as a strong buy with significantly higher price targets. And so, I think Ichor Holdings may offer a good risk to reward ratio at the current price.


Ichor Holdings overview

Ichor Holdings is a company that designs, engineers and manufactures a critical fluid delivery system for semiconductor capital equipment. The fluid delivery subsystem ensures accurate measurement and uniform delivery of specialty gases and chemicals at critical steps in the semiconductor manufacturing process.

Top 10 Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now: Kohl’s Corporation(KSS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Maybe Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) wasn’t crazy after all. Or maybe it was crazy like a fox. In any event, the department store’s decision to partner with Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and sell the e-commerce giant’s products as well as accept its returns seems to be paying off.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS)fiscal first-quarter 2018 results, released on May 22, reveal its momentum even as many fellow brick-and-mortar retailers struggle with an industry shift to e-commerce, and rapidly evolving consumer purchasing habits. Kohl’s reported revenue growth of 3.5% over the last three months, to $4.2 billion, and boasted a 3.5% lift in comparable-store sales.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    After initially declining following the company’s first-quarter earnings report, shares of Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) went on a furious rally beginning in late May. Kohl’s stock jumped 30% in the span of just three weeks, hitting a new all-time high around $80 last week.

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    To me, the introduction of delightful uncertainty is reminiscent of Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) gamification of shopping. Kohl’s features a more stable, predictable, department-store-genre selection of goods. Yet it dangles layers of discounts and promotions, which can then be combined with “Kohl’s Cash” (customer rewards generated by prior purchases) to serially reduce the list price of an item at checkout. Both TJX and Kohl’s attempt to bolster value with fun, in order to maintain steady traffic into their respective stores.

Top 10 Cheap Stocks To Buy Right Now: Wendy’s/Arby’s Group Inc.(WEN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Throughout its history, Starbucks has mostly had a company-owned model for its retail locations, a strategy that is at odds with a trend of activist investors pushing fast food, restaurant and coffee companies to franchise locations out to raise cash for stock buybacks and debt reduction. In recent years, activists have targeted Jamba Juice (JMBA) , Potbelly (PBPB) , Jack in the Box (JACK) , Wendys Co. (WEN) , McDonald’s (MCD) and elsewhere. In addition, Starbucks has a one-share, one-vote structure, which can make it vulnerable to an activist investor seeking to elect dissident director candidates as it pursued the strategy.

    Warren Buffett likes to hold his stock positions for the long run, and his experience with USG (NYSE:USG) has been typical of his other long-term investments. The Oracle of Omaha started buying shares of the manufacturer of Sheetrock drywall and other building materials back in 2000, accumulating a sizable stake that has ballooned to more than 30% of the company. USG ended up going through bankruptcy in order to get a handle on its asbestos liability claims, but thanks largely to Buffett’s involvement, the building materials company not only survived bankruptcy but also saw share prices soar briefly on hopes that USG would once again fully participate in the then-strong housing boom.

    Sirius XM
    The more than 206.74 million Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) shares that were short after the last two weeks of this month amounted to just 0.1% or so more than on the previous settlement date. This was the third-lowest level of short interest in the past year, and it totaled 15.8% of the available float. The average daily volume has shrunk in seven of the past eight periods, and the number of days to cover inched up to nearly 13. Sirius’ stock price was $7.22 at the trading day’s close yesterday. Its 52-week low is $5.09 and the 52-week high is $7.33, a multiyear high posted this week.

    Remember, Apple (AAPL) had run because its service-revenue stream made the tech giant part of an elite group of companies. It joined Costco (COST) , Netflix (NFLX) , and SiriusXM (SIRI) , Spotify (SPOT) and Amazon (AMZN) (home of Amazon Prime) as companies that charge you recurring fees that you don’t seem to notice or care about. So, Apple’s stock no longer represents the tug to the group, and each company has to develop a separate power base away from Cupertino.
