10 Deeply Discounted Stocks to Buy

10 Deeply Discounted Stocks to Buy

The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index is on pace for a loss in 2018. While the 1% decline year-to-date isn't broadly catastrophic, it has been fueled by several shares that have simply been cleaved. But there is a silver lining: This has created a number of deeply discounted stocks to buy.

History has shown us that when rates rise, stocks typically decline - at least temporarily. This was the case in 1994, 2006 and last February. The market's latest swoon, caused in part by more upward pressure on interest rates, may be painful, but it too may just be temporary. That's little comfort to owners of numerous stocks that have fallen precipitously off their recent highs. But that is good news for bargain hunters that are looking for battered stock picks to grab up off the ground.

Here are 10 deeply discounted stocks to buy - companies that are anywhere from 20% to 50% off of their 52-week highs:

The BAITs: 4 Chinese Tech Stocks to Buy to Replace the FANGs

The BAITs: 4 Chinese Tech Stocks to Buy to Replace the FANGs

Wall Street loves its acronyms. For a long time, FANGs have reigned supreme, but now it may be time to pay attention to the BAITs.

When was the last time you read a market recap that did not include mention of the FANG stocks? Depending on your definition, this group of typically (but not always) highflying tech stocks included the likes of Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL), though other stocks are often mentioned in the same breath.

Why not? Acronyms catch investors' attentions and get plenty of media play. The problem is when these vaunted stocks don't give investors the fat returns they expect. Sure, Amazon is up 38% year-to-date, but it is now trading down 13% from its Sept. 4 peak. Alphabet's performance lags the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index by two percentage points for the year, and Facebook is actually negative by 22%.

But a different group of tech stocks seems poised to carry the mantle of market leadership. And they provide the game-changing technology to the world's second largest economy. They are China's version of the FANGs, called BAITs. they now look attractively priced thanks to China's recent bear market.
