A sharp increase in the stock price, as well as the valuation ratio, has led to an increase in the price of stocks. There are still a handful of undervalued stocks that trade below $1.00 per share despite the stock market being more expensive as a whole than it has been historically.
When you look in the right places, value investing opportunities exist. To find the best stock under $1.00, investors have to look at companies that are smaller and riskier, as well as in sectors that have been undiscovered or ignored by the market. It may not seem like the best idea to hold shares of these cheap companies throughout multiple economic cycles today, but long-term investors can profit if they exercise patience and remain patient.
