Top 10 Stocks Under $20

Here at Zacks, we don’t generally classify stocks as “cheap” or “expensive”, and rather than looking at the stock’s face value, we have a system that puts an emphasis on earnings estimate revisions to find stocks that will hopefully be winners for investors.

That being said, low-priced stocks can be attractive to smaller investors that can’t necessarily afford large stakes in companies with higher priced stocks. When looking at these low-priced stocks, we can look at the same trends in growth, value, and momentum and apply the Zacks Rank to properly analyze the potential that these companies have.

Today we’ve highlighted ten stocks that are currently trading for under $20 per share. All of these stocks currently have a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), and a variety of other factors make these companies stand out as having strong upside potential. We’ve also spread this list across different sectors and industries so investors looking for low-priced stocks can put together a diverse portfolio or find a stock in their favorite market sector:

1. Lionbridge Technologies ( LIOX )

Current Price: 6.06 / Expected Yearly EPS: 0.52

Lionbridge Technologies is a provider of globalization services to other technology companies worldwide. As the world continues to become more connected, Lionbridge provides software and training to help others adapt to and communicate with other cultures.

2. Orion Engineered Carbons ( OEC )

Current Price: 18.08 / Expected Yearly EPS: 1.36
