top cheap stocks to buy now

We are not especially frugal, but were generally not trying to wring every penny out of life. That combination of not watching every penny we spend and not maximizing how many pennies we bring in probably doesnt, on its face, sound like a recipe for financial success.

Fortunately theres more than one way to do most things.

While you can read our detailed rundown of our full financial plan and philosophy, today were going to dive deep into the math on the decision that has by far given us the greatest financial success.

    Canadian gold mining company NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: NG) shows an even starker change in sentiment. In the last 12 months, the volume of short bets on the stock declined 79%, to 522,400.

  • [By William Romov]

    Over the last year, the number of short positions on gold stocks has fallen. One of these stocks is a Canadian gold mining company called NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: NG). In the last 12 months, the volume of short bets on the stock declined 79%, to 522,400. This shows a shift in sentiment from bearish to bullish for gold.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When an investor thinks of Canadian gold mining stocks, NovaGold Resources Inc. (USA) (NYSEMKT:NG) and Yamana Gold Inc. (USA) (NYSE:AUY) are often the first names to come to mind. And well they should. Yamana Gold is a $2.5 billion giant, and NovaGold Resources seems to have been around forever.

    Those two icons aren’t the only way to tap into Canada’s sizeable gold mining industry though. There’s a small, up-and-coming player called Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:TNREF, TSX:TRO) that could end up becoming another key fixture of the country’s mining landscape.

    Taranis develops mineral deposits into mine-ready projects. Its primary project right now — and it’s enough to keep the company plenty busy for the next several years — is the Thor property located near Trout Lake, British Columbia. NI 43-101 resource reports (indicated and inferred)suggest Thor contains 6.9 million ounces of silver, 35,000 ounces gold, 57 million pounds of lead, 79.4 million pounds of zinc and 3.3 Million pounds of copper (roughly a 14 million ounce silver equivalent (“AgEq”) deposit*) laying in wait in a way that lends itself to the establishment of a low-cost, open pit mining operation. That’s roughly $300 million worth of marketable metals, and the estimates have been steadily getting bigger as Tanaris does more survey work.

    And 2017 could be a real breakout year for Taranis, as a lot of the work that’s been done to date starts to mean something. It’s got big exploration plans for this year… this spring/summer to be exact.

    The Phase 1 program was completed in September of last year, setting the stage for a more defined and much bigger Phase 2 definition-drilling within the next several weeks. This Phase 2 definition drilling slated for the middle of this year will drill down to between 6000 m and 10,000 m.

    These so-called first generation target areas are generally well understood areas based on sound geological information includ

top cheap stocks to buy now: SanDisk Corporation(SNDK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Michael Flannelly]

    Early on Friday, analysts at RBC Capital boosted the near-term estimates on SanDisk Corporation (SNDK), a manufacturer of data storage products, because a fire at SK Hynix’s factory should lead to favorable pricing over the next two quarters.

    “We see a favorable pricing environment as a result of SK Hynix’s fire, which threatens to curtail NAND output as the company likely re-purposes production back toward DRAM, resulting in lower than expected incremental NAND wafers vs. company’s plan of 170K/WPM,” RBC Capital analyst Freedman said. “Consequently, we see stronger pricing through EoY before SK Hynix ramps NAND toward normalized prod’t levels as DRAM resources are restored/replaced.”

    The analysts maintain an “Outperform” rating on SDNK and still see shares reaching $76. This price target suggests a 26% upside to the stock’s Thursday closing price of $60.08. Furthermore, they boosted SanDisk’s 2013 EPS estimates from $4.82 to $4.95.

    SanDisk shares were up a fraction during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 38.11% year-to-date.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2018

There has been a recent pullback in tech stocks, particularly in the chip sector and this has prompted me to look for some buying opportunities. This pullback gave me an opportunity to buy Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (GOOGL), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Micron Technology (MU), which I think are inexpensive large cap tech stocks, but I also have been looking for even bigger bargains in much smaller companies. At the end of each year, I sift through many small cap stocks to find bargains that have been hit by end-of-the-year tax-loss selling. With all this in mind, a stock I have been watching for quite a while now seems to be a great year-end buy, due to the recent tech stock pullback and tax-loss selling. This stock appears significantly undervalued, the balance sheet is very strong, growth is expected to increase significantly, and it could be poised for a significant rebound as tax-loss selling fades. Let’s take a closer look below:

Aehr Test Systems (AEHR) is a small but high potential tech company that is based in Fremont, California. This company makes systems that can burn-in and functionally test chip devices such as digital signal processors, microprocessors, microcontrollers, sensors, optical devices and more. The products made by this company reduce the cost of testing and perform reliability screening for many electronic devices which are becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives. The trend towards self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, robotics, and mobility are likely to lead to secular growth for many semiconductor firms and the companies that supply them.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

Amanda Freund remembers the exact moment when her uncle, Ben Freund, raised the idea of bringing a robotic milking system to the family’s dairy farm.

“It was January, 2015, and we were in the office, just there next to where those cows are,” she says, gesturing past the group of dry cows (the ones preparing to have their calves) that are grazing in one of the Freund barns. “And at the time, I was really perplexed. Like, how do we even begin to take on that kind of financial burden?”

Located in the northwest corner of Connecticut, in East Canaan, the Freund farm was established in 1949, when Amanda’s grandparents, Eugene and Esther Freund, began tilling the land. Today, the 200-acre farm is a thoroughly modern – and sustainable – operation, complete with more than 700 solar panels that meet the farm’s entire energy needs and a methane digester for converting manure into biogas that, in turn, heats the Freund’s house.

    The reality is often different. What is going on with Bellatrix Exploration is actually above average. I have written about many companies such as Sandridge Energy (NYSE:SD), Energy XXI (OTCPK:EXXIQ), and Halcon Resources (NYSE:HK) where the companies supposedly has premier assets, fantastically valuable reserves, and the investors lost everything. Right now Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) appears to be heading down the same miserable pathway as the others. At least with Bellatrix, the company appears to be entering the slow turnaround phase. But this has definitely not been a painless experience.
