We all want to feel like we’re getting a deal. We coupon, we look for discount codes, and we wait for Labor Day to head to the car dealership or the mattress store.

We do it as consumers and as investors — with stocks we hunt for bargains, hoping to recognize an absurd value before the rest of the market catches on and shares rocket up.

Some people — especially new folks with Robinhood investing accounts — turn to penny stocks or look for the best stocks under $10 or $5 hoping to make some easy money. But that’s actually one of the most destructive ways to invest.

In this video, we break down the difference between stock price and valuation and explain why seemingly expensive stocks (based on price) can actually be “cheap stocks”. We also explain the huge mistake of fixating on share price, or even fixating on just low P/E stocks if you’re trying to follow the tenets of value investing.

Plus, we give you some cheap stocks to buy now!

Most companies do share buy backs as part of their shenanigans. They do it to make the earnings per share look better so the C suite executives can get their bonuses. This is very common. Buy backs do not benefit shareholders.

Ed March says:

vector vest values the price at 96 while the price is 197 over valued.
TGT is a buy @ price of 113 value of 112

Green flag: stock is above 200 day moving average. Red flag: under 200 day ma. Best. Put a trailing stop on the 200 ma. 😉

Nvstr (pronounced "Investor") is a modern investing platform designed by ex-hedge fund guys to make smart investing simple. Today's online and app-based brokerages are still patterned after pioneers from the 1990s. Nvstr is different. It empowers you to invest better with the collective experience of people you trust and the community. Nvstr's technology also helps you optimally diversify your portfolio in a click. Right now they're giving people up to $1,000 free cash to invest when you join (selected at random, but you're guaranteed at least $10).

Really? Then why Buffet not pointing his loaded gun onto these "cheap" stocks?

Casey Dresselhouse says:

Go Altria!! They will be just fine. They are pretty damn good at "scrambling" as they have have been for decades when nicotine has been seen as a "bad investment." And that dividend yield is worth the wait!!
