In this article, we will be looking at the 10 best stocks under $10 to buy right now. If you want to skip our detailed analysis on these companies, you can go directly to the 5 Best Stocks Under $10 to Buy Right Now.

Investing in cheap stocks can lead to financial success given that one invests in cheap stocks with strong fundamentals and growth potential. Any cheap stock under $10 certainly won't be like Amazon, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG), or Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). However, they can often be good value investments to seriously consider, and current investing trends show that more investors are gravitating towards cheaper stocks with shares under the $5 or $10 mark. For instance, in the spring and summer of 2020, over 25% of the shares traded in the US stock market were from companies with share prices under $5, as per the New York Stock Exchange. This trend isn't something new either, as the percentage of shares under $5 being traded on the US stock exchange was somewhere between 10% to 15% from 2012 to 2019 as well. As such, investing in cheap stocks can be considered a relatively prevalent and popular investing strategy with much to offer, providing you invest in the right companies with good growth potential.

With the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the global economy has seen unprecedented changes. Stock markets across the globe are no stranger to the adverse impact of the pandemic, as according to BBC, the FTSE, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the Nikkei all suffered major financial losses during the start of the pandemic and the virus gradually took hold of markets and societies alike. The FTSE suffered most, compared to the Asian and US stock markets which began recovering in light of vaccine production and distribution announcements. It dropped about 14.3% last year, a figure that marked the FTSE's worst performance in over a decade.

With changes in the stock markets across the globe, we also witnessed a plethora of changes in all other major walks of life. Lockdowns and travel bans resulted in a variety of industries taking a hit, and many people across the world lost their sole source of income because of layoffs. The IMF reported that in the US alone, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in about 8.9% of the population being unemployed, while workers numbering in the millions were put on government-supported job retention schemes. The economy itself suffered such huge losses that until today, many countries are in recession, with the IMF recording that in 2020, the global economy shrunk by about 4.4%. In light of all the above, investing is now not only becoming riskier than ever but is also becoming out of reach for many who do not have the financial standing to buy expensive shares in large companies. As such, we have compiled a list of the best stocks under $10 to buy right now.
