Five Oversold Stocks: One Is a Strong Buy, One Is a Lotto Ticket

DD Revenue Quarterly Chart DD Revenue Quarterly data by YCharts

DuPont (DD - Get Report)

Background: DuPont is involved in science and technology in a range of disciplines including high-performance materials, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.

52-Week Range: $41.67 to $53.98

Book Value: $11.12

Price To Book: 3.9

DuPont currently pays $1.72 in dividends for a yield of 4%. The dividend payout rate is 52% of profits. I like DuPont for the yield and the discounted share price. Look to acquire shares under $43 for a long-term hold and sit back and collect the dividend until you're ready to sell.

The pendulum swings both ways, and in five or six years when the economy is in an upswing again maybe sell if warranted. The average analyst target price for Dupont is $51, and short sellers are not in a rush to sell shares short. Only 2.7% of the float is short.
