Top 9 Stocks Under $10 per Share

Investors seem to love low priced stocks, due to the fact that perceived potential gains from price movements appear to be higher than high priced stocks. After all, a ten cent rise on a one dollar stock is 10%, ten cent gain on a $10 stock is only 1%, and an increase of 10 cents on a hundred dollar stock is only one tenth of a percent.

The fact is that high priced stocks can move just as much on a percentage basis as low priced stocks. Yet investors still want the low prices.

When looking for quality low priced stocks to buy, investors generally look for several factors from a fundamental standpoint. They are:

1. The stock sells for less than $10 per share.
2. The stock has a price to earnings ratio under 20.
3. The stock has a forward P/E ratio less than 20.
4. The stock has a price to earnings growth ratio under 2.
5. The stock has no debt or low debt to equity.
6. And to top it off, the stock pays a dividend.

The following nine stocks have all these features, and deserve a closer look.
