Financially Sounds Stocks Selling At A Discount

Ricardo Crouch

Companies with shares trading at a market price below what they are actually worth, such as Changyou.com and Internet Gold – Golden Lines, are deemed undervalued. Investors can profit from the difference by investing in these stocks as the current market prices should eventually move towards their true values. If capital gains are what you’re after in your next investment, I’ve put together a list of undervalued stocks you may be interested in, based on the latest financial data from each company.

CYOU’s stock is currently floating at around -37% less than its actual value of $45.9, at the market price of $29.01, based on its expected future cash flows.
