Please note that any research that we publish does not take timing into consideration. We may publish research for a stock that we believe is of good quality but not necessarily trading at a discount or at a technical level for a high probability entry.

Today, we’ll look at the best shares to buy right now that we think are undervalued stocks on the ASX.

Undervaluation can come from a few factors – these include competition strength, higher risk future valuations, and most commonly, intrinsic value missed by investors.

Now, market timing is still an important factor – so you will still need to take some care in looking for an entry as the stock price will change day by day.

Best Shares to Buy Right Now which are Undervalued Stocks on the ASX

These stocks are the best shares to buy right now as they show strong potential but are considered to be undervalued stocks as they have not necessarily rallied along with the rest of the market.

Unlike dividend-paying blue-chip shares which tend to hold their value better, these stocks tend to be higher risk.

This is because you are generally buying when the market has been sold off, and there is likely to still either be a fair amount of short holdings or other investors are still looking for opportunities to short it when it rises.

Having said that, if the stock does rally enough, we should see a short squeeze in these stocks which will cause the stock to shoot up.

If you are a longer-term investor looking to add to your portfolio, keep an eye on the fundamentals. A lot of these stocks are beaten down because of issues they’ve had in the past.

If they are not able to overcome them, then it may be wise to cut losses as opposed to holding and hoping.

If you are looking for something with an even higher risk for a better potential return, we have a list of the 5 best penny stocks on the ASX.

How We Pick The Best Shares To Buy Right Now

Stock markets are generally driven by three factors within the markets.

Understanding these forces helps us time the market and buy or sell stock at the most opportune moments.

In general, the markets and stocks are firstly driven on a short-term basis via supply and demand imbalances.

This is the order flow on a day-to-day basis as investors buy or sell a stock for different reasons.

This order flow is generally hard to forecast and requires strong technical analysis and understanding of the underlying market to properly time.

Secondly, markets and stocks are driven by macroeconomic forces in the medium term.

Factors include but are not limited to changes in interest rates, consumer sentiment, government policies, and so forth.

Understanding the nuances and how the different countries interact with each other in terms of trade and politics is key to understanding the forces that drive the markets as a whole.

Finally, stocks in the long term are driven by fundamentals. Factors include but are not limited to quantitative factors such as earnings growth, profit margin, and return on equity.

Qualitative factors include factors such as competition, operating environment, and political and policy environment.

To be able to pick the best shares to buy now, it is essential to combine market timing, macroeconomic, and fundamental analytics.
