    Intel's Core i9-9900KS CPU can run all eight cores at 5GHz

    It wouldn't be Computex if Intel didn't have some sort of geek-friendly CPU reveals. This time around, it's the Core i9-9900KS, a "special edition" upgrade of its flagship 9900K . The biggest improvement? It'll be able to reach 5GHz boost speeds across all eight of its cores, instead of just on a single one. Intel isn't giving us many details about the chip until its Tuesday Computex keynote, but the company confirmed it'll have a 4GHz base speed, a slight leap beyond the 9900K's 3.6 GHz. Curiously, they wouldn't reveal the chip's TDP, so it's unclear if it'll demand more power than the original model. During a brief demo with press, Intel showed the chip running via Windows Task Manager, which had every core maxed out at 5GHz. So, at the very least, we know the silicon is real.

    Kass: 3 Spots of Vulnerability I Would Avoid in This Market

    The U.S. has rolled back some of last Sunday's restrictions on Huawei, giving the company a temporary reprieve. Regardless, I have learned from my industry sources that Huawei has likely increased (hoarded?) their component inventory levels substantially. Nobody is looking at Huawei's balance sheet and even if they did they probably couldn't find the inventory line as there are so many off balance sheet items that the Chinese typically use.

    10 Tech Stocks Walloped by the Huawei Ban

    On May 16, the U.S. Department of Commerce put China's Huawei on the "Entity List" as a national security threat. This move escalates a government campaign against the Chinese technology company beyond banning its products from sale in America. It means U.S. tech stocks are prohibited from selling sensitive tech to Huawei. Several days later, Huawei was given a 90-day temporary reprieve, but the damage is already being felt throughout the tech sector.U.S. technology companies from chip makers to software providers are seeing their stock impacted by the Huawei ban. Some are being hit despite not being directly involved with Huawei -- the move has further ramped up a trade war between China and the U.S. and that brings the threat of boycotts and retaliatory tariffs. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them From Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), here are 10 tech stocks that are feeling the effects of the U.S. ban on Huawei.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Tech Stocks Walloped by the Huawei Ban: Intel (INTC)Source: Intel Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) sells processors to Huwaei for use in its laptops. Since the Huawei ban was announced on May 16, Intel stock has dropped. The company doesn't depend heavily on Huawei -- Bloomberg estimates that business is less than 1% of Intel's total revenue -- but losing it doesn't help.Especially when it comes just weeks after Intel lost Apple's iPhone business to Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) and ended up abandoning its 5G mobile modem efforts altogether. Micron (MU)Source: Micron Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) is a U.S.-based semiconductor company. And it happens to supply the flash storage chips used in Huawei's popular smartphones, including the new P30 Pro. * 7 Marijuana Stocks to Play the CBD Trend When the sales ban was announced, Micron's business with Huawei was effectively cut off. Even with the relief of the temporary 90-day reprieve, Micron stock has taken a hit, down 8% from Friday morning. Google (GOOGL)Source: Google Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google division is in the thick of the Huawei mess.Google doesn't stand to lose much revenue in terms of hardware -- its Pixel smartphones and Google Nest Home smart speakers don't really have a presence in the China -- but software and advertising revenue are another matter. When the Huawei ban was announced, Google pulled Huawei's Android license. New Huawei smartphones won't get stock Android and they won't have access to Google services. The prospect of the second largest smartphone maker in the world being severed from Google (cutting into Android licensing fees, Google Search ad revenue and Google Play revenue) has resulted in GOOGL stock sliding since last Friday. Tesla (TSLA)Source: Tesla TSLA has been on a dramatic downward trajectory all week, for many reasons that have nothing to do with Huawei. But Telsa stock is also feeling the indirect impact of the U.S. government's move. * 5 Cheap Stocks to Buy That Are $6 or Less As the trade war heats up between China and the U.S., the prospect of new tariffs on goods imported into China and the potential for Chinese consumers to boycott American-made goods -- including Tesla's electric cars -- have led to some analysts to predict TSLA could miss its 2019 sales targets by as much as 10%. Lumentum (LITE)Source: Lumentum American telecommunication company Lumentum (NASDAQ:LITE) primarily makes optical components used in commercial lasers and networking equipment.Huawei is also big in networking equipment (it was security concerns over the Chinese company's push to supply 5G networking infrastructure that kicked off this current crisis), and it buys Lumentum components. As a result, Lumentum stock's drop neared double digits on the day the Huawei ban was announced. Qorvo (QRVO)Source: Qorvo Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) is another U.S. semiconductor company, with a heavy involvement in wireless and broadband networking, including 5G.Half of the company's revenue comes from Chinese customers and in updated financial guidance released on May 21, Qorvo says 15% of its 2018 revenue came from Huawei. * 5 Large-Cap Stocks Getting Crushed in the Trade War With that Huawei revenue in jeopardy and the Chinese market in general being increasingly affected by the trade war, Qorvo stock has dropped over 9%. Corning (GLW)Source: Corning Corning (NYSE:GLW) isn't always thought of as a technology company. But the American glass maker's products are used in a slew of high tech applications.One of those speciality products is the Gorilla Glass used to protect the displays of smartphones. And Huwaei is a Corning customer. With the business of the world's second largest producer of smartphones in jeopardy, Corning stock has taken a tumble this week. Broadcom (AVGO)Source: Broadcom Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) is another example of the tech stocks that have been negatively affected by the escalating trade war with China. * The 7 Best Penny Stocks to Buy When Huawei was added to the Entity List, Broadcom announced it would stop selling components to the Chinese company. As a result, AVGO is down over 9% since the Huawei ban was first announced. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)Source: AMD Ordinarily, any time that a PC maker parted ways with Intel would be a big opportunity for Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) and its increasingly popular Ryzen processors.That's not the case with the Huawei situation … AMD reportedly stands to lose 2% of its revenue by cutting off its business with Huawei. And the company could also suffer if increased tariffs hit its CPU and GPU business with other Chinese PC makers. AMD stock has taken a hit of as much as 7% since the Huawei ban was announced. Apple (AAPL)Source: Apple AAPL stock finds itself in a strange position with the Huawei ban. Any measures that hurt Huawei's ability to sell smartphones should benefit Apple Inc, opening an opportunity to sell more iPhones.However, Apple is very vulnerable to the overall trade war with China that Huwaei is a part of. Most of the company's iPhones are assembled in China. And although iPhone sales have been slowing in China, the Chinese market, is still an important revenue stream for Apple. If China were to retaliate and ban Apple products from being sold there, a Goldman Sachs analyst estimated Apple's profits could take a 30% hit. * The 7 Best Penny Stocks to Buy So Apple joins the long list of tech stocks that are being impacted by the Huwaei sales ban, with AAPL down roughly 8% since Friday.As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

  • Intel Stock Could Still Have a Long Way to Fall

    Intel Stock Could Still Have a Long Way to Fall

    Editor's Note: This story was corrected on May 26. 2019.General Electric (NYSE:GE). JC Penney (NYSE:JCP). US Steel (NYSE:X). In investing, and business, a good name and a long history are worth precisely nothing. This is especially true in technology, where once-great names like Silicon Graphics, Wang and Novell never got a chance to grow old.Source: Shutterstock But Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)? Intel, the home of Moore's Law, whose semiconductor chips practically invented the world we live in? Intel?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYes, Intel.In the last month, Intel has lost over 23% of its value. That's over $45 billion whacked off its market cap. At about $43.60, it's selling for just 10 times last year's earnings, just three times last year's sales. Is it possible that Intel could join these other names on the scrap heap of business history? Self-Induced Troubles for Intel StockIt is possible.Intel has been drifting for years. I worked on a project during the last decade about their problems with mobile chip technology. They're still not fixed. CEO Bob Swan is just the seventh leader in Intel's history, the second without a technology background. Today only two members of the company's nine-member board are technologists. * 5 Safe Stocks to Buy This Summer As Adam Savage once said, "Well, there's your problem." Intel has lost its technology edge.Intel stock is four years late with its 10 nm manufacturing process. Rival Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE:TSM) is already rolling out 7 nm chips.Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), once Intel's baby brother, has lapped it in this decade. Since the start of 2016, AMD's stock is up over 800%. Intel is up 29% in that period. The average Nasdaq gain has been 53%.Intel stock has been beaten in modem chips by Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), beaten in memory chips by Micron Technologies (NASDAQ:MU) and beaten in graphics by Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA).AMD is now beating it in microprocessors.Intel's chips have been hit repeatedly with security flaws, and the fixes cost processing speed. AMD seems immune to the latest vulnerabilities.Intel's low prices and high volumes mean it has reclaimed its lead among semiconductor makers from Samsung Electronics (OTCMKTS:SSNLF). But that's a function of the memory chip business, which will turn around with the rest of the market.Intel is down to $3 billion in cash, down from $15 billion at the end of 2015. Long-term debt is over $25 billion, above the level listed on the balance sheet for common stock equity. Swan's WayBob Swan didn't start this fire.Former CEO Brian Krzanich tossed out rivals like a Game of Thrones character but was undone by his own sex life. Krzanich left the executive cupboard bare. Intel was unable to recruit any of the names he dumped for its top slot, settling on Swan the way Manchester United did on Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer.Swan seemed to be doing OK as interim boss for Intel stock, bringing in an outside perspective his predecessors did not have, but since January the problems have piled up for the former eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) executive, who started his career at General Electric. Swan has struck an attitude of humility but he's still losing top tech people, especially top women, like cloud boss Raejeanne Skillern, now at Flex (NASDAQ:FLEX). The Bottom LineI must join those analysts who now wonder if Bob Swan has the technical chops to turn Intel around. Swan's chief technology officer, Mike Mayberry, is an Intel lifer from the production side of the house. He's not a visionary.Intel needs a visionary. Technology companies are natural kingdoms. They can't be led by committees. They require strong leadership of the kind Intel rivals have. But Andy Grove isn't walking through that door. Gordon Moore is still around, but he's 90.Intel stock is continuing to drift toward the rocks. Investors have finally gotten the scent. While I hope I'm wrong, the company's worst days may be ahead of it.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

    What a Trade War Could Mean for Tech Stocks

    Last week, the U.S. Commerce Department added Huawei Technologies to its Entity List, saying, “The U.S. government has determined that there is reasonable cause to believe that Huawei has been involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States.” This in effect bars the Chinese telecom equipment maker from doing business with U.S. companies, although the trade restriction was given a 90-day reprieve a few days later.

  • Is Nvidia Stock a Good Short-Term Investment?

    Is Nvidia Stock a Good Short-Term Investment?

    Amid the turmoil surrounding the U.S.-China trade dispute, Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock is again declining. With the company's prospects in China in question, Nvidia stock will struggle to gain traction in the short-term.Source: Shutterstock Nvidia's move into tech's most important sectors has bolstered Nvidia stock price in recent years. As a result, the long-term outlook of Nvidia stock remains solid. However, Nvidia stock price probably won;t rise much in the near-term without an event or a meaningful drop in its price-earnings multiples. * 6 Stocks to Buy for This Decade's Massive Megatrend Put simply, Nvidia is a long-term buy because NVDA has arguably become the most important chip company. In the PC era, that title belonged to Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). However, applications more prevalent in today's tech world -- such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), data centers, and deep learning -- depend on Nvidia's chips. Intel has made some headway against Nvidia in the data-center sector and AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) has become a threat in other tech sectors. Nonetheless, Nvidia leads the way overall.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Look for Changes in ValuationMoreover, the PE ratio of Nvidia stock, like that of other semiconductor stocks, will fluctuate tremendously based on changes in investors' sentiment. At first glance, that may not appear profound, as the PE multiples of most stocks fluctuate. However, few stocks' multiples have shifted as much as those of NVDA stock or of those of its peers, such as Intel and AMD.In the early part of the decade,the PE ratio of Nvidia stock often fell into the teens. At that time, traders saw Nvidia as a dying PC stock. However, optimism began to turn in 2015, when Nvidia became a leading player in several emerging tech sectors. As a result, the multiple of NVDA stock often exceeded 50 until the market-wide selloff began of last fall. As a result, investors can expect Nvidia stock price to fluctuate between about 13 and around 55 times NVDA's earnings. How to Play NvidiaToday's valuation of about 29 times earnings (and 20 times the consensus forward earnings estimate) is just below the middle of the historical range. Before the multiple of NVDA stock could near 55 again, the trade war would have to end and crypto currencies would have to recover.With bitcoin back above $8,000, a partial crypto recovery could occur. However, it's more difficult to predict when the trade war will end. Moreover, Nvidia stock price may fall further if no agreement is made soon.For these reasons, I would wait for awhile before buying NVDA stock. However, I would buy NVDA stock in the near-term if the trade war ends or if the forward PE of NVDA drops below 20, which occurred in December. If the trade war ends, I think Nvidia will rise for multiple days, taking the multiple much closer to the 55 level we saw before the selloff in late 2018. The Bottom Line on Nvidia StockInvestors should buy Nvidia stock, but only after prompted by an event or a meaningful decline in its valuation . Nvidia leads the way in powering tech's latest applications. In my view, this makes NVDA the most crucial chip stock, and it means that NVDA is a long-term buy.However, with the trade war still being waged, buying Nvidia for the short-term is risky. Moreover, competition from Intel and AMD makes the outlook of NVDA stock more uncertain. Still, if traders can buy Nvidia at a discount, or if market conditions begin to justify a higher PE ratio, NVDA will become attractive for short-term and long-term investors.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Now, a leaked slide detailing Intel's server CPU plans -- courtesy of an April Huawei presentation -- suggests that Intel may have been slightly underselling its product launch plans, at least as far as its data center offerings go. In line with expectations, the slide suggests Intel will launch the first Xeon server CPUs relying on its delayed 10-nanometer (10nm) manufacturing process node -- they'll leverage a microarchitecture known as Ice Lake -- in Q2 2020.

    15 Cheap Stocks With Low Risk Profiles

    [Editor's note: This story was previously published in October 2018. It has been republished to reflect the current market sentiment for, what we believe, are long-tail investments.]The current bull market has been defined by a risk-on attitude from investors. Over the past several years, investors have been willing to take on additional risk in the equity markets due to robust growth potential, and as such, riskier names with big growth profiles have out-performed.But the market's risk-on attitude is starting to taper back some. Interest rates are rising. The Federal Reserve is unwinding its balance sheet. Economic growth globally is slowing. Government debt levels are high. Overall, macro risks in the market are bigger now than they have been in recent memory, and as such, investors are adopting a more risk-adverse mentality than before.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhat is the investment implication of this? It is probably a good time to shift money into cheap stocks with low risk profiles. I don't think you throw in the towel on growth names. The fundamentals remain strong, and growth stocks should still do well. But, just in case a Black Swan emerges that hits growth stocks hard, it is smart to hedge by owning some cheap stocks that will offset that potential blow. * The 7 Best Stocks to Buy From the IPO ETF Which stocks should you buy? Here's a list of 15 of my favorite cheap stocks with low risk profiles: AT&T (T)The bull thesis on AT&T (NYSE:T) is pretty simple. This is a telecom giant that provides one of the most important utilities in the known world today: the internet. AT&T also provides wireless service coverage and cable connectivity. Demand for internet and wireless services will not waver, regardless of economic backdrop or rising rates, because they have no substitute. Cable connectivity is dropping, but should be replaced by streaming demand. Thus, AT&T offers tremendous operational stability.Meanwhile, the valuation is attractive. The forward multiple sits at just 9. The trailing dividend yield is over 6%. And, the stock is trading near multi-year lows and has shown resiliency around these levels multiple times before.Overall, AT&T stock is low multiple, big yield stock with tons of operational stability. That makes this stock an attractive risk-off investment. Tyson Foods (TSN)The bull thesis on Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) is also very simple. This is a very stable company with a stock that has been hammered recently because of near-term issues like higher input costs, tariff exposure and softer demand. But the world always needs to eat, and as such, the long-term demand picture overrules near-term cost issues. Once near-term cost issues fade away, TSN stock should roar higher.At current levels, it appears TSN stock has found a bottom. The forward multiple is just 10, and the dividend yield is at 1.8%, its highest level in nearly a decade. Meanwhile, the stock has show resiliency at $60, so it looks like downside risk is mitigated. * 10 Names That Are Screaming Stocks to Buy Overall, Tyson Food is an operationally stable company trading at a big discount. That makes this stock an attractive pick-up at current levels. Qualcomm (QCOM)Chip giant Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) has had some struggles recently. Most notably, the company has been in litigation with Apple, and the Apple business is something that can no longer truly be counted on. But, Qualcomm still makes chips which power the world of tomorrow, and as such, the company has a bright future as technology expands its sphere of influence globally.QCOM stock is quite cheap at current levels. We are talking about a stock with a 15X forward multiple and a 3.6% dividend yield. Historically speaking, QCOM stock trades at a much bigger multiple with a much lower yield.Overall, QCOM stock offers attractive upside here because of a relatively discounted valuation converging on still-strong growth fundamentals. That combination should power this stock higher from current levels. Intel (INTC)Another historically stable chip stock with a relatively anemic valuation is Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). Long story short, Intel stock has dropped in a big way over the past several months because competitor Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) appears to be ahead of Intel when it comes to next-gen chip production. But, Intel recently announced that next-gen chip production is coming along nicely, a sign that Intel is getting ready to punch back. Once this company does punch back, history says that Intel stock should rebound.This bull thesis is supported by a currently attractive valuation. INTC stock trades at just 11X forward earnings with a 2.6% dividend yield. Those are exceptionally attractive valuation metrics for a company with robust exposure to multiple secular growth trends like AI, cloud, and IoT. * 7 Athletic Apparel Stocks With Marathon Pace Overall, INTC stock is a growth company trading at a non-growth valuation. Eventually, the market will fix this disconnect, and INTC stock will pop. Macy's (M)Back when Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) was eating everyone in retail's lunch, Macy's (NYSE:M) was a risky investment. But, traditional retail has stabilized over the past 12-plus months, and traditional retailers like Macy's have proven their staying power through enhanced e-commerce and omnichannel commerce capabilities. As such, Macy's is a low-risk investment with long-term staying power in a stable growth industry.The valuation on Macy's stock is the reason to buy this stock on the recent dip. Macy's stock trades at 8X forward earnings with a near-5% dividend yield. Those are very attractive valuation metrics, especially considering comparable sales growth has been, is, and will remain positive at Macy's.Overall, Macy's stock features a dirt-cheap valuation, but the fundamentals are actually pretty good and improving. This disconnect makes Macy's stock an attractive buy at current levels. Skechers (SKX)In athletic retail, everyone loves to talk about Nike (NYSE:NKE), Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY), and Under Armour (NYSE:UAA). But, no one likes to talk about Skechers (NYSE:SKX). Yet, despite being the often neglected little brother, Skechers has managed to be one of the fastest-growing companies in this industry over the past several years thanks to its ability to dominate the mid-price sneaker market. As it turns out, this market is quite big, and Skechers is just starting to realize its international potential.Meanwhile, despite being a big growth company, SKX stock trades at dirt cheap multiples. The forward multiple on the stock is just 14, versus 24 and up at peers. This disconnect isn't justified by differences in growth. As such, it is a disconnect that shouldn't exist. * 7 Safe Stocks to Buy for Anxious Investors Overall, SKX stock is an attractive risk-off investment because the valuation is dirt cheap and the growth fundamentals are pretty strong. That combination implies healthy upside potential and mitigated downside risk. Facebook (FB)Although traditionally considered a growth stock, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) has recently transformed into a value stock given huge declines in the stock price without huge declines in the fundamentals. Everyone is concerned about dropping Facebook app usage, but at the end of the day, Facebook controls four 1-billion-user apps. There are only six such apps in the world. Thus, so long as ad dollars continue to flow into the digital channel, they will find their way into the Facebook ecosystem, and Facebook will remain a digital ad growth machine.The valuation on the stock represents a huge disconnect to these fundamentals. Facebook stock trades at just 19X forward earnings. Revenue growth last quarter was in excess of 40%. A 19X multiple on 40%-plus revenue growth is absurdly cheap, even when factoring in the concerns about the lawsuit currently in the courts over their ad numbers.Overall, FB stock offers attractive upside potential here because the valuation has depressed enormously while growth fundamentals have remained strong. Eventually, the market will realize this, and FB valuation and stock will correct sharply higher. Apple (AAPL)Consumer technology giant Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is perhaps the textbook definition of stability, especially since the company is diversifying away from hardware revenue dependence. Before, Apple was all about iPhones. But, as we all know, not every iPhone upgrade cycle is a home run, so Apple stock was subject to wild swings. Today, though, Apple is much different. The company is building out a software business which comprises mostly annually recurring subscription revenues. Thus, revenue today is much more predictable and safe than it was a few years ago.Because of this, AAPL stock trades at a higher valuation today than it did a few years ago. But, the valuation still remains anemic for a burgeoning software company. AAPL stock trades at 16X forward earnings. The whole software industry trades north of 20X forward earnings. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives Overall, AAPL stock is an attractive risk-off investment here because the multiple is low, and the growth trajectory is promising. That combination provides both nice upside potential and healthy downside protection. Disney (DIS)The long-term bull thesis on Disney (NYSE:DIS) is only strengthening as this company continues to grow its content war-chest. From head to toe, Disney owns the best and most valuable content in the world. This content has dominated the box office and has allowed Disney to dominate in the theme parks business, too. Next up, Disney is going to dominate the streaming world with its robust content slate, and as a result of streaming strength offsetting traditional media weakness, Disney stock should fly higher.The valuation lends itself to a pop in DIS stock on a positive catalyst. The stock trades at just 16X forward earnings with a 1.4% dividend yield. Those are very reasonable multiples for a stock that supports one of, if not the, most iconic brand in the world.Overall, DIS stock looks good here because its biggest headwind (cord-cutting losses) is about to turn into its biggest strength (streaming growth), and the current 16X forward multiple doesn't account for this. Yum Brands (YUM)After McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), the next most important and irreplaceable fast-casual company in the world is Yum Brands (NYSE:YUM). Yum is the parent company of KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, three fast-casual chains with enduring appeal and huge global footprints. Unless consumers en masse decide to stop eating fast food (which they almost assuredly never will), then YUM's operations will consistently benefit from stable growth.The valuation on YUM stock isn't all that cheap. But, it is cheap for a company with as much stability as Yum Brands. YUM stock trades at 24X forward earnings with a 1.6% dividend yield. Those aren't all that attractive by themselves. But, when considering growth is expected to run at a very stable double-digit rate over the next several years, 24 seems like a fairly reasonable forward multiple. * 5 Conservative ETFs for Any Market Environment Overall, YUM is one of the more stable companies in the world with a stock that features a reasonable valuation. As such, if you're looking to add stability to your portfolio, YUM is the way to go. Ford (F)Although the electric vehicle revolution is starting to pick up steam and will only accelerate from here, it would be foolish to write off Ford (NYSE:F) as dead in the water. Eventually, Ford will pivot more strongly to accommodate changing consumer demands, and produce a ton of electric vehicles. They have already started working on a partnership with DHL to make all-electric vans for the company and is targeting Chinese consumers with a range of electric cars.Granted, Ford's market share of the whole auto market will erode over time as new EV competitors step up. But, Ford should remain a sizable player in the auto industry for the foreseeable future.The valuation does not reflect this optimism. Ford stock trades at levels not seen since the 2008 Recession. The forward earnings multiple is around 6.5, and the dividend yield is near 7%. Those are dirt-cheap valuation metrics.Thus, so long as Ford can compete in the long run with rising EV competition, this stock should pop higher from here. Kroger (KR)The world always needs to eat, and most people need grocery stores to buy food. Because of this, grocery store operator Kroger (NYSE:KR) is a stable operation with healthy long-term growth prospects. That stability was recently threatened by e-retail encroachment. But, it turns out that consumers like to shop for groceries at a grocery store, and as such, Kroger has long-term staying power in an exceptionally stable industry.This stability does not seem priced into the current valuation. Kroger stock trades at merely 12X forward earnings with a near 2% dividend yield. Normally, this stock trades at 15X forward earnings with a sub-1.5% yield. Thus, today's valuation feels unnecessarily pessimistic. * 10 Small-Cap Stocks That Look Like Bargains Overall, KR stock is a buy because valuation has depressed to levels that undervalue the company's staying power in a stable growth industry. As such, KR stock has nice upside potential and limited downside risk. Booking Holdings (BKNG)Traveling is part of the human experience, and as a result, Booking Holdings (NASDAQ:BKNG) is part of the human experience, too. So long as consumers want to travel, Booking will have solid demand. The only thing that will knock this demand is economic weakness, but while global economic growth is slowing, it isn't projected to slow by much, and the overall economic picture remains healthy. Thus, the outlook for travel remains healthy, and the fundamentals supporting BKNG stock remain strong.BKNG stock isn't as cheap as some other names on this list -- the stock trades at over 18X forward earnings. But, growth is big, with long-term EPS growth estimates hovering around 15%-20%. A 20X multiple for 15%-20% earnings growth in a stable company is a fairly attractive investment proposition.Overall, BKNG is an attractively valued stock that offers a healthy combination of growth and stability. This combination should ultimately power BKNG stock higher, so long as valuation remains reasonable. JPMorgan Chase (JPM)Although higher rates tend to spook stocks, they actually help bank stocks by pushing up borrowing costs and allowing banks to collect more net interest income, which is a big profit driver. As such, bank stocks are a fairly decent portfolio addition at this point in time. In the banking sector, the one stock I like most is JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), given the company's leading advantages in technology and rising popularity among millennial consumers.The valuation on JPM stock isn't anything out of the normal. The forward earnings multiple is around 11. The dividend yield is around 2.9%. Those are fairly normal valuation levels for JPM. But, considering growth should be better than normal over the next few years as the economy improves, the current valuation levels seem attractive. * 5 Great Tech ETFs That Aren't the XLK Overall, JPM is the top pick in a sector that should be fairly resilient to interest rate risks. As a result, this is a good stock to own so long as rising rates continue to pressure equity valuations. American Electric Power (AEP)Utility stocks have long been viewed as bond substitutes. As such, utility stocks might not do so well as rates and bond yields rise. But, one utility stock that could buck the trend is American Electric Power (NYSE:AEP). Considered one of the industry's heavyweights, American Electric is a massive electric utility company that delivers electricity to more than 5 million customers across eleven states. As a utility company, demand is always stable. But, the business right now is doing especially well. Hotter than normal weather so far in 2018 has buoyed operations for the past several months, and robust economic strength in the company's core markets has also boosted the business. Overall, sales and earnings are both trending higher at a healthy rate.AEP's dividend yield sits at a very healthy 3.5%. The forward earnings multiple is at attractive levels of around 18, which is in line with historical standards. Thus, today's valuation on AEP stock is fairly normal, but fundamentals are actually better than normal.Overall, AEP stock should perform well regardless of macro-market risks because of solid and stable fundamentals as well as a reasonable valuation. From this perspective, AEP is an ideal cheap stock with a low risk profile.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long T, TSN, INTC, AMZN, M, SKX, FB, AAPL, DIS, MCD, F, KR, JPM and AEP.
