If you're making changes to your portfolio in September, look no further than Citigroup (C) - Get Report , Intel (INTC) - Get Report and Total (TOT) - Get Report . That's the assessment from Andy Kapyrin, director of research at RegentAtlantic.

Kayprin said Citigroup is very inexpensive relative to its peers based on price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios. Plus, emerging-market economies are rebounding -- good news for Citigroup, which derives 40% of its revenue from emerging nations.

As for Intel, Kapyrin said it's cheap. "It won't necessarily grow, but it also won't become [troubled] Kodak (KODK) - Get Report ," the expert said, although he acknowledged INTC faces the competition from Nvidia (NVDA) - Get Report and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) - Get Report .

As for French oil company Total, Kapyrin said the company can post a profit even with low oil prices. "They have a cost structure that's much lower than smaller, more marginal peers," he said.
