Today’s post is a bit of a chart-fest to show you seven stocks that are selling at their multi-year lows right now.
Walter Schloss is one of my all-time favourite investors and used to buy stocks that were selling at there multi-year lows as a way of getting ‘in at the bottom’.
He was/is not the only one to use this technique.
The the idea behind buying stocks selling at their multi-year lows is that if you are a buyer at such low prices (at or near that which the stock has previously ‘bounced off’) then you are giving yourself protection from downside risk.
By buying at or near price points that a stock has not fallen past before, you are entering the market at a point where the investing public could not stand for prices to go lower because there are no more sellers left at such low prices.
You are exploiting other market participants’ fear by buying at or near to the point of maximum pessimism.
With that caveat, here are seven stocks (and their charts) selling at their multi-year lows right now.
Acorn Energy (NASDAQ: ACFN)
Gentiva Health (NASDAQ: GTIV)
Imperva (NYSE: IMPV)
Lihua (NASDAQ: LIWA)
InspireMD (NYSE: NSPR)
Quin Street (NASDAQ: QNST)
Uni-Pixel (NASDAQ: UNXL)

I’m going to trust you to not just go out and buy these stocks without doing any research.
Enjoy your weekend 🙂
