NEW YORK ( Stocks Under $10) -- For eight years, the Stocks Under $10 newsletter has provided readers with insight and advice into finding the best investments in the low-dollar universe. This area of the investing world tends to be more volatile and our goal is to help investors find stocks with meaningful potential catalysts, while avoiding the many potential pitfalls.
To accomplish this, we actively trade a model portfolio -- diversified across various sectors -- of approximately 20 stocks that fall into three investment styles:
First, we have Game Breakers. These names are the very reason why folks like to trade stocks under $10. The majority of today's top growth companies were low-dollar stocks at one point and we scour the market for firms with a radically new technology or business strategy that could make them a future market leader.
Next, are Inflection Point names. These stocks are currently down on their luck, but we've identified a potential catalyst or two that could materialize in the near term and improve the company's fundamental outlook. By getting in ahead of the news, we can maximize investment gains in the turnaround play.
Finally, we have Stealth Stocks. I believe this strategy is the signature of our service. There are thousands of U.S. stocks that are actively traded and Wall Street doesn't have the resources to cover them all. However, we roll up our sleeves and do our research to find the best low-dollar investments that are trading at a discount to the market and flying just below the investment radar.
In addition to the alerts covering trades and company updates, we also send out a weekly summary after the close of trading each Friday. This includes our latest thoughts on each holding in the model portfolio, including current weighting and potential price levels where we'd look to make our next buy or sell.
