- The ONLY Way to Play Markets Like These
Warren Buffett said, "Price is what you pay... value is what you get."
The best investor in the world knows the only way to prosper (especially in markets like these)... is to invest in VALUE.
But this $2 stock could be the last value play in the market today.
Shares of the online marketplace for insurance shopping have shed about 60 percent in the past year. That’s in spite of a nearly 20 percent rise in revenues in the past year, although the company has reported a loss in the same timeframe.
Action to take: The share price has started trending higher in recent weeks, and shares remain nearly two-thirds off their 52-week highs. They could be poised for a further rally. Investors may like shares here, although the stock doesn’t pay a dividend.
For traders, the June $17.50 calls, last going for about $2.20, offer mid-to-high double-digit gain on a rally in shares in the months ahead. The calls are near-the-money, and could move in-the-money on about a 10 percent rally in shares from their current price near $16.
