3 Super Cheap Stocks to Consider Buying This Week

The Fed is likely to slow its pace of rate hikes over the coming months as inflation shows signs of cooling. Moreover, experts believe the stock market could see a significant rally at the year-end. Hence, fundamentally strong stocks Rimini Street (RMNI), GEE Group (JOB), and Ultralife Corporation (ULBI) might be solid buys this week. These stocks are trading at a discount. Read more...

The October CPI report sparked a steep rally in stocks and represented a game-changer for the market. Moreover, looking at the signs of inflation cooling, the majority of policymakers recently agreed it would “likely soon be appropriate” to slow the pace of interest rate hikes. 

Fundstrat’s Tom Lee reiterated that softening inflation would change the Federal Reserve’s hawkish stance on raising rates to bring prices down. He said that the stock market could see “fireworks” in the last five weeks of the year, with signs pointing to inflation cooling in November. Lee also predicted the S&P 500 to reach 4,400-4,500 by year-end, about 10% higher than current levels. 

While some experts are concerned that the Fed’s historic pace of interest rate hikes, aimed at cooling down the hot economy, could spur a recession next year, the Conference Board CEO Steve Odland told CNBC that any potential downturn is expected to be mild. 

Given the rising optimism, fundamentally strong stocks Rimini Street, Inc. (RMNI), GEE Group, Inc. (JOB), and Ultralife Corporation (ULBI), which are trading at a discount, might be solid buys this week.
