Looking For Stocks Trading Under $10? Here Are 5 You Can Buy Right Now

Jayson Derrick

John Dorfman of Guru Focus presented a list of five stocks investors should consider buying that are trading for less than $10 a share.

According to Dorfman, stocks trading in the single-digit values are considered risky, racy and volatile, but at the same time, they offer an outsized return if discovered by institutional investors.

Here are his top five picks:

1. Pier 1 Imports Inc (NYSE: PIR)

Pier 1 is a seller of home decor and furniture and should benefit over the next two years given the U.S. dollar's strength, which favors importers and an increase in household formations.

2. Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: HMPR)

Hampton Roads is a regional bank based in Virginia; its stock is trading for less than its book value and at a multiple of just three times earnings.
