While it’s often the blue chips that take the headlines, there’s a lot of value to be found in bargain stocks. There’s something exciting about getting in on stocks as they grow, and there’s also the benefit of smaller stocks being more affordable.
These three stocks have high potential and good growth signals as we head into the second half of 2019.
Marinus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: MRNS)
Pharma stocks make a lot of sense in times of high volatility and economic uncertainty. The stock market is relatively stable today, but an investment in Marinus Pharmaceuticals could still be a smart move to protect your portfolio. Not only is this stock expected to weather some volatility, it also looks set to grow.
Marinus is currently developing a novel depression treatment that some analysts believe could be a game changer for the company. It is expected that trial results will be announced in the coming months.
Depression affects 40 million adults in the United States, or just over 18% of the population. A safe and effective depression treatment could be a major revenue generator.
Marinus has gained 36.59% year to date.
DHX Media (NASDAQ: DHXM)
Big potential and big yield. These are the two key reasons to consider DHX Media in the second half of 2019. This company is a media content developer, focusing primarily on children’s entertainment. It is the owner of intellectual properties like Teletubbies, Inspector Gadget, and Peanuts.
While stock hasn’t performed well in 2019, analysts believe that in the coming years, DHX could see its revenue soar. As streaming platforms compete for more of the content share, shows produced by smaller companies like DHX will be in high demand. At today’s price, the stock’s dividend yield sits at 4.16%.
DHX has declined -10.78% year to date.
Comstock Resources (NYSE: CRK)
Alternative investors are going big on solar energy and lithium stocks today, leaving plenty of untapped potential in traditional sectors like gas and oil. Comstock Resources is engaged in both sectors. It has particularly strong interests in the exploration and acquisition of natural gas.
Revenue increased 52.84% in the 2018 fiscal year, reflecting continued high demand for petroleum and gas products. There’s no doubt that clean energy is the future, but this doesn’t mean that oil and gas will lose all relevance. In fact, most analysts believe that gas prices will trend upwards in the coming years, which makes this stock a good long-term bet for investors.
Comstock has gained 14.13% year to date.
All three stocks are trading under $10 today, minimizing risk for new investors.
As with any investment decision, perform due diligence on every prospective stock purchase, and always take new investments into the context of your wider portfolio. Analyst opinions and stock history are never a guarantee of future performance.
