In "5 Cheap Stocks to Ride Out the Trade War," Jack Hough says investors shopping for stocks are better off now simply favoring cheap ones with decent long-term growth prospects, including Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAT) and Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE: SCHW).

Andrew Bary's "Nordstrom Stock Is Now a Can't-Miss Bargain" makes a case that though Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) shares have been cut in half from their 2015 peak due to investor worry about tariffs and a disappointing holiday season, those fears are baked in.

Videogame stocks have tumbled and reasons to be worried about the industry are plentiful, according to Take-Two Is Winning the Game" by Tae Kim. See why Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc (NASDAQ: TTWO) is the exception.

In Al Root's "Pinterest Committed a Cardinal Sin for a Newly Public Company," discover why when Pinterest Inc (NYSE: PINS) released its first-quarterly earnings report as a public company last week, the numbers left investors wanting.
