Five “Win-the-Lottery” Stocks Under $10

Focus: STOCKS

Today, I’ve run a stock screen for MoneyShow.com readers looking for bargain stocks with big upside potential. Unlike any of my other screens, this screen focuses on stocks trading under $10 per share with a market cap of around $1 billion or less. As for the variables that I used in the screen, I focused on fundamentals, particularly companies that have:

  1. A healthy balance sheet with little debt,
  2. Strong prospects for rapid sales, and…
  3. Growth in earnings

Be forewarned: These kinds of stocks carry huge risks to them. A simple downgrade, news event, or missed earnings target can derail these small-cap stocks in a heartbeat and they can sometimes have low volume. But if you have some capital that you want to roll the dice with, these stocks will give you a good start in your research.

Here are my “$10 lottery specials.”
