Cheap Stocks To Invest In

Kayla Ward

Undervalued companies, such as Foot Locker and Biostar Pharmaceuticals, are those that trade at a price below their actual values. Investors can benefit from buying these companies while they are discounted, because they gain when the market prices move towards the stocks’ true values. Below is a list of stocks I’ve compiled that are deemed undervalued based on the latest financial data.

Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE:FL)

Foot Locker, Inc., through its subsidiaries, operates as an athletic shoes and apparel retailer. Established in 1879, and headed by CEO Richard Johnson, the company size now stands at 32,175 people and with the company’s market capitalisation at USD $4.92B, we can put it in the mid-cap category.

FL’s shares are currently hovering at around -23% under its value of $52.84, at a price of US$40.52, according to my discounted cash flow model. This mismatch signals an opportunity to buy FL shares at a discount. Furthermore, FL’s PE ratio is trading at around 18.15x while its Specialty Retail peer level trades at, 19.25x suggesting that relative to its peers, we can purchase FL’s shares for cheaper. FL is also robust in terms of financial health, as near-term assets sufficiently cover liabilities in the near future as well as in the long run. The stock’s debt-to-equity ratio of 4.96% has been diminishing for the past few years signifying FL’s capacity to reduce its debt obligations year on year. Continue research on Foot Locker here.

Formed in 2007, and now run by Ronghua Wang, the company currently employs 200 people and with the company’s market capitalisation at USD $7.57M, we can put it in the small-cap category.

BSPM’s shares are now floating at around -85% lower than its actual worth of $18.29, at a price of US$2.68, based on its expected future cash flows. This price and value mismatch indicates a potential opportunity to buy the stock at a low price.
