Top 5 Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now

Betting on bargain stocks that have a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is a convenient and common investment approach. The perception is that the lower the P/E, the higher is the value of the stock. This inference is drawn on the simple logic that a stock’s current market price does not justify (is not equivalent to) its higher earnings and therefore has room to run.

Naturally, there are very few investors who pay attention to stocks with an increasing P/E. But this often-overlooked trend can prove useful in finding great stocks. Let’s dig a little deeper.

Why Stocks with Rising P/E Can be Equally Hit

Investors should note that stock prices move in line with earnings performance. If earnings come in stronger, the price of a stock shoots up. Solid quarterly earnings and the forward guidance in turn boost earnings forecasts, leading to stronger demand for the stock and an uptrend in its price.

So, if share price is rising steadily, it means that investors are assured of the stock’s fundamental strength and expect some strong positives out of it. Also, studies have revealed that stocks have seen their P/E ratios jump over 100% from their breakout point in the cycle. So, if you can pick stocks early in their breakout cycle, you can end up seeing considerable gains.

    It goes deeper than that, in fact: I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t absolutely nuts about airplanes, aeronautics, and the adventures aviation has spawned throughout history. It was a passion I inherited from my late dad, a physicist by education and an engineer by experience. He started his long and honorable career with Hamilton Standard and Pratt & Whitney up in Connecticut – and ended that career with Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC).

    Shares of Helios and Matheson (NASDAQOTH:HMNY) caught an updraft today, rising all the way from $0.0088 per share to close at $0.0124 per share. That may not sound like much, but it worked out to a 40.8% gain for the stock.

    Much of that was because Helios and Matheson Analytics (NASDAQ:HMNY) launched MoviePass with an unsustainable business model. To staunch the massively mounting losses it was experiencing, MoviePass ended up limiting the movies subscribers could see, the theaters they could be viewed at, and the times they were available. It raised and lowered prices almost at will, reneging on some agreements and backtracking on others.

    Multiplex operators hatedHelios and Matheson Analytics'(NASDAQ:HMNY)MoviePass, claiming that the dirt-cheap subscription service that offered up a screening a day for just $9.95 a month was devaluing the product. The MoviePass model never made financial sense for Helios and Matheson, which has to pay retail price for most of the movie tickets purchased, but it was a mother lode for film buffs that topped 3 million members over the summer.
