    Wal*Mart. They aren't going anywhere and it's cheap to get a stock from them.

    Go to www.investors.com watch the videos and read the training material on how to pick some stocks.  They will tell you to buy stocks minimum 15 bucks, however I find good stocks around 6 dollars, that even their specs show are good except for the 15 dollar, they rank in multiple categories 90+

    You do not want to buy stocks that are what most say are a bargain, if the stock is on the down  there is a reason.  You want stocks on the up, that means the P/E ratio might be high.  There are many other factors, so go check out investors.com lots of great info, and you can get a score on stocks in a particular sector.

    I would look at the well known companies, or ETFs, and also ones that give dividends. You can reinvest the dividends and increase the number of shares you hold in that company. If you do that your dividends are not taxed.

    Now some stocks are cheap for a reason and it is not always because they are doing badly some companies split them so that you and can buy them easily and much more. We recommend them for you though because it is easier for you to make money in cheap stocks as against expensive ones since they add value faster than the more expensive ones or because they have low multiples. Before you buy them do your research well, try and buy the stocks of companies you patronise by that I mean the ones you buy their products and also the ones that pay dividends like some one pointed out. They ones that pay dividends attract short terms investors from time to time. Read our Stocks Take Away at for today May 24 2010: http://www.xgains4keeps.com/StocksTakeAway38525.aspx

    If you are indeed a "beginner", please be careful in what you are told is a "cheap" stock. It has nothing to do with the price the stock trades at.

    In other words....buying a $4 stock versus a $50 stock isn't necesarily cheaper and it doesn't tell you what your question is really asking. This can be especially true based on the industry and sector you're looking at (such as bio-tech!)

    I don't intend to be vague but your question deserves a detailed answer. Make sure you have access to unbiased research or a professional who can steer you in the right direction...

    hey there,

    well there's a lot of cheap stocks out there.... it really depends on what u consider cheap.

    there are small cap stocks (which are considered to be any stock under 5$)

    there are penny stocks which are usually under 1 $

    and there are sub-penny stocks which are fractions of a penny.

    anyway for a cheap stem cell research stock; i intend to invest a couple of hundred bux in Cord Blood America (cbai.ob) its on the OTC:BB market. I think pps (price per share) is fair and that this stock is undervalued.

    best regards,

    from the staff @   www.PennyStockHot.com

    cheers have a good day!

    As others have said, the price is immaterial.
