2 Under the Radar Stocks to Buy Before Others

Well, this simple plan is often complicated by things like human emotions, greed, and market corrections.
2 Under the Radar Stocks to Buy Before Others
You should still try to find laggard stocks that haven’t been performing as they have on a historical basis. One good example is companies that are impacted negatively by high-interest rates. Once those come down, and they should soon, these companies will likely see a boost to their top and bottom lines. Here are 2 such stocks that continue to trade under the radar.

Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX)

It hasn’t been a great year for Starbucks shareholders. Over the past year, shares have returned a loss of nearly 8.0% compared to gains of more than 30% from the S&P 500. A quick glance at the chart shows that the stock has barely moved since the correction in the fall of 2023. It has also been all downhill since hitting an all-time high price of more than $125 in July 2021.

But Starbucks the stock isn’t necessarily indicative of Starbucks the business. The company is going through a transition period under new CEO Laxman Narasimhan, the successor to long-time CEO Howard Schultz. Usually, the market makes a new CEO prove to them that they belong in the position. The stock is sitting at long-time weekly support at around $90 and a bounce looks imminent. Starbucks will be reporting earnings in April and will want to show shareholders how the company is becoming leaner and more efficient. The long-term plan is for global locations to be more than 55,000. This includes an aggressive expansion into Asia and India. This stock is long overdue for a pop so get in before everyone else does!

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD)

You might be thinking that AMD has already seen a push for being a chip stock. If you’ve been tracking the sector, AMD has easily been one of the worst-performing stocks. After a recent rally to $220, the stock has given up all of those gains and then some. The stock has come back down to Earth and it feels like a lot of retail traders have given up on it and are chasing NVIDIA ($824.39|3.67%).

AMD has some powerful GPUs coming that many in the industry believe could mirror that of NVIDIA. There is also a nice technical setup because of its recent retracement. AMD sits at a key support level that has been bounced off of several times already. AMD has always been a stock that likes to re-test its averages and moves more like a staircase than a straight rocket upwards.

The stock is basing now and is ready for a pop if it ever sees the right catalyst. Perhaps something like an NVIDIA stock split announcement or from the US government about the potential for more government projects.
