3 Stocks Under $5 That Are Ripe for a Turnaround

Investors are always on the lookout for the best stock purchase, but the signs that indicate the ‘right’ stocks are an inconsistent lot. A high or rising share price, upside potential, or dividend payment have all been used – but all have their exceptions. Some investors say to keep away from low-cost stocks, as a price under $5 gets that low for good reason – but some ‘penny’ stocks are fundamentally sound and show the best upsides in the market.

With this in mind, we used TipRanks’ database to find compelling stocks with bargain price tags. The platform steered us towards three tickers sporting share prices under $5 and Moderate or Strong Buy consensus ratings from the analyst community. Not to mention substantial upside potential is on the table.

SAP’s Grim Warning Is Weighing on Enterprise Software Stocks, Including IBM

Text size

SAP reduced its overall revenue outlook for the current year and specifically trimmed expectations for its cloud-software business.


Alex Kraus/Bloomberg

The German software giant

SAP

lost nearly a quarter of its market valuation on Monday after the company issued a sobering update to its financial forecast for the rest of the year, along with weaker-than-expected third-quarter results.

The slide was weighing on shares of hardware and software companies with substantial exposure to enterprise information-technology spending.

While there has been much discussion about how the Covid-19 pandemic is driving an acceleration in “digital transformation,” the global economic downturn triggered by the outbreak has also spurred many affected companies to slow or reduce spending plans in response. In short, while the pandemic has helped a few well-placed tech companies—including

6 Internet Stocks Set to Beat Estimates in Q3 Earnings Season

Internet stocks’ third-quarter 2020 performance is expected to have significantly benefited from an uptick in the demand for Internet-based services and products as a result of the coronavirus-led growing work-from-home and learn-from-home trends.

Moreover, the practice of social distancing in a bid to contain the virus outbreak has bolstered growth of online shopping services globally, which, in turn, is expected to have remained a major tailwind.

Further, the growing proliferation of video conferencing tools, thanks to the increasing remote working trend, is anticipated to have remained a positive in the quarter under review.

Additionally, increased user engagement on social media platforms, owing to the coronavirus outbreak-led lockdowns and shelter-at-place guidelines, is likely to have aided growth of the Internet companies that offer such platforms.

This is evident from the better-than-expected performance delivered recently by Snap SNAP. The company’s third-quarter 2020 results were primarily driven by an improved user engagement, which

Why Are Other Social Media Stocks Rising On Snap Inc’s Earnings Report

As Snap Inc. announced its third-quarter earnings report on Tuesday, its rival social media sites’ stock prices trended upwards at a significant clip, in what some analysts attributed to an increase in advertising spending on the platforms, Bloomberg reported.

Snap (SNAP) reported a revenue increase of 52% to $679 million for the quarter compared to Q3 2019. Net loss was $200 million, down from $227 million a year earlier, and operating cash flow improved by $21 million to $55 million for the quarter.

According to Bloomberg, two analysts raised their ratings on Pinterest to buy following the release of Snap’s
