While Most of Wall Street focuses on large and mega-cap stocks, as they provide a degree of safety and liquidity, many investors are limited in the amount of shares they can buy. Many of the biggest public companies, especially the technology giants, trade in the low to mid hundreds all the way up to over $1,000 per share. At those steep prices, It’s pretty hard to get any decent share count leverage.


Many investors, especially more aggressive traders, look at lower-priced stocks as a way to not only make some good money but to get a higher share count. That can really help the decision-making process, especially when you are on to a winner, as you can always sell half, and keep half.

We screened our 24/7 Wall St. research database looking for smaller cap companies that could very well offer patient investors some huge returns for the rest of 2023 and beyond. For low-price stock skeptics, many of the biggest companies in the world including Apple, Amazon and Netflix all traded in the single digits at one time. In addition, Nvidia, which has exploded higher on AI semiconductor chips traded under $10 for years.

One stock we featured over the years, Zynga, was purchased by Take-Two Interactive. Cogent Biosciences, featured in March of 2022 has tripled. While all five of the companies are rated Buy, it’s important to remember that no single analyst report should be used as a sole basis for any buying or selling decision.
