In December of 1999, RadioShack Corp. (NYSE: RSH) stock was worth more than $76 per share. Today, RSH is worth less than $1. It has joined a group of once-profitable industry leaders that can now be classified as penny stocks. Some companies, like General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM), are able to rebound from penny stock levels. As the U.S. car market continued to falter, GM eventually entered bankruptcy in June 2009. Existing shareholders were given shares of Motors Liquidation Co., which traded for pennies (much to their dismay). Thanks to a government bailout, GM stock reemerged in November 2010, near $34 per share. Today, shares trade near $37 and the stock has gained 17% in the last year. But not all stocks follow GM’s path. Others are never able to build themselves back up and eventually go private or bankrupt… 10 Best Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Tyson … Continue reading

Two very different retailers–supermarket chain Kroger (KR) andhigh-end apparel retailer Ralph Lauren (RL)–caught our eye this afternoon for the same reason: analyst downgrades that slammed stock prices. Kroger Well start with grocery giant Kroger, whose shares are down 4.6% at $37.45 at 3:22 p.m. after Credit Suisse analyst Edward Kelly downgraded it to Neutral from Outperform and slashed the price target to $39 from $48. “While Kroger remains a well managed, high quality company positioned for long-term share gains, the risk/reward seems to be deteriorating,” Kelly cautions. It isnt just Kroger that Kelly and co. are hesitant to get excited about. The entire supermarket industry comes under fire: We have become more cautious on the sector given weakening volumes, extremely low inflation, and always intense competition against improved valuations…Kroger seems particularly vulnerable given its strong performance and what now seems to be somewhat aggressive consensus estimates. We recommend investors move … Continue reading

SunPower (SPWR) is one of the largest integrated solar companies in the world and produces the most efficient crystalline silicon solar panels. The company has seen a large stock price appreciation in the last one year, as it has recovered from the brink of bankruptcy. SunPower has become more competitive with Chinese crystalline solar panel makers like Canadian Solar (CSIQ), Yingli Green Energy (YGE), etc. by expanding rapidly into the downstream solar development segment and winning some large multi-year utility deals. The company has also been helped by continued capital support from the backing of its parent Total (TOT). This has proved to be extremely important as the solar development business is capital intensive and the industry has been suffering huge losses in the last couple of years. I had advocated buying SunPower around six months ago as the best US solar stock. The stock has risen by more than … Continue reading
