3 Top Stocks Under $10 – Motley Fool

Now’s the Time to Buy These Stocks – Motley Fool

A lot of investors -- maybe you're one of them -- are kicking themselves right now for not buying "wish list" companies when the stock market bottomed in March. Of course, timing the market is easy in hindsight and virtually impossible (not to mention extremely risky) in real time. But it's pointless to dwell on what's past. Instead, focus on the stocks that you can still buy today, at a significant discount to their prices at the beginning of the year. In fact, now is a great time to pick up shares of Waste Management (NYSE:WM), Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP), and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B). Here's why.Image source: Getty Images.These three companies have a few things in common. First, they're all trading at l...

5 Great Stocks I Want to Own a Whole Lot More Of – The Motley Fool

There's absolutely no question that 2020 is going to be a year that investors never forget. In a matter of weeks in late February and early March, the U.S. stock market went from humming along at all-time highs to the fastest decline into bear market territory in history (just 17 trading sessions) in the wake of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Ultimately, the widely followed S&P 500 shed 34% of its value in a span of just 33 calendar days.While panic-selling can certainly be unnerving if you're a short-term trader, it's always been an opportunity to buy into great companies at a discount if you're a long-term investor. Throughout the 33-calendar-day decline in the broader market in February and March, I took the opportunity to add quite a few new companies to my inv...

3 High-Growth Stocks That Could Soar – The Motley Fool

Growth stocks can be risky, but one or two big winners in this category can outweigh the losses from several unsuccessful investments. Finding the right high-growth investments is often made more difficult by the fact that companies under this banner tend to optimize their business models for maximum revenue growth -- even if that leads to zero or negative bottom-line profits. Skimpy profits, in turn, make it more difficult to pin a reasonable market value on the stock, which triggers high volatility. Finding those future winners helps you look away from the hyper-volatile tickers and punctured business models in your portfolio along the way.What follows is a high-level overview of three incredibly promising growth stocks. All of them were doing just fine before the COVID-19 crisis turne...

5 Dividend Stocks I’d Buy Right Now – Motley Fool

This year has been a tough one for dividend investors. More than 175 public companies have reduced their dividend by at least 50%, with many of them suspending their payout. They made these moves to preserve cash so that they can survive the current challenging economic conditions in the fallout of the COVID-19 outbreak.  However, not all dividend stocks are cutting their payouts these days. Several expect to keep growing them despite the current market conditions. Five of these dividend standouts are water utility American Water Works (NYSE:AWK), infrastructure operator Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE:BIP)(NYSE:BIPC), electric utility NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE), industrial REIT Prologis (NYSE:PLD), and pipeline giant&n...

Buy Alert: Novavax Stock Is Heading Higher – Nasdaq

Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX) has had a phenomenal run since I bought shares in the fall. Overall my cost basis is $6 per share; right now the stock is trading hands at $48 per share.What's fascinating, and a little scary, is that the dramatic stock increase has almost nothing to do with my original investment thesis. The reason why I bought Novavax: influenza. Novavax had a strong vaccine candidate in phase 3 trials, and the flu vaccine is a $5 billion market opportunity.What I didn't know at the time was that COVID-19 would strike, putting much of the world into lockdown mode, and sending some small biotech stocks into the stratosphere. That's why shares have run up so high: Novavax has developed a potential vaccine for COVID-19, and it's starting clinical trials in humans.Image So...
