TipRanksThe Bottom Is in for These 3 Stocks? Analysts Say ‘Buy’Markets thrive on risk, but risk is hard to talk about. It’s easy to fall back on cliches – buy low and sell high, or the bulls and bears make money while the pigs get slaughtered – but those cliches have drifted into common parlance for a reason. They have a grain of truth.Buying low and selling high has always been known as the way to make a profit, from the earliest days of human barter. And whether the market is moving up or down, whether investors follow a bullish or a bearish strategy, it’s possible to turn that profit.So, let’s talk about buying low. While the overall market has recovered nicely from the pandemic swoon of mid-winter, many stocks are still struggling with a depressed share value. Some of them are fundamentally sound – and Wall Street’s analysts have taking note.Using TipRanks database, we pinpointed three such stocks. Each is down at least 60% so far this year, but each also has a Strong Buy consensus rating and at least 40% upside potential for the coming months.Diamondback Energy (FANG)First up is Diamondback Energy, a Texas …

“If COVID has taught you anything it’s taught us that we can’t depend on a single source of income,” Constance Carter said.

STOCKTON, Calif. — A Stockton woman is helping people navigate their financial journey after going from bankrupt to millionaire in about ten years.

Constance Carter is the CEO of her real estate company, Catalyst Real Estate, and is a multi-millionaire with multiple streams of income.

However, when Carter was starting off her real estate career she said she wasn’t good with her money.

“I didn’t really know how to manage it and I ended up filing for bankruptcy,” Carter said. “I ended up having poor credit. My credit went from an 800 down to a 379 which is almost as low as you can get.”

She said she had to figure out budgeting and finance since she didn’t learn about those topics growing up. She said her parents didn’t have great credit and she was even homeless for a time.

“I had to sit there and think about my life and think about all the things I had gone through and what got me in my situation,” Carter said.

Little by little she was able to …

TipRanksThese 3 Penny Stocks Have Massive Upside Potential, Says CowenIt’s a mixed bag when it comes to opinions on penny stocks. These tickers trading for less than $5 per share divide Wall Street like no other; market watchers either love them or hate them.It’s easy to understand the appeal. First and foremost, you get more bang for your buck. On top of this, with shares changing hands for bargain prices, even what seems like miniscule share price appreciation can translate to monstruous percentage gains. For some, however, the risk poses too great a threat to ignore. When you look under the hood of these low-priced names, you might find very real problems like poor fundamentals or looming headwinds.So, how are investors supposed to spot the penny stocks poised to go from rags to riches? By turning to the pros.With this in mind, we wanted to take a closer look at three penny stocks getting love from the pros, namely the analysts at investment firm Cowen. According to the firm, all three could soar in the year ahead. Using TipRanks’ database, we learned why Cowen analysts are pounding the table despite the risk involved.Neos Therapeutics (NEOS)Developing …
