Barron's Eleven Deals Under $10

Description:

The S&P is on sale, and there are bargains to be had among the stock market's lowest-priced issues. To find them, Barron's first screened the Standard & Poor's 500 for stocks trading below $10 a share -- a group that currently numbers roughly 80 issues, or 16% of the index. Most are down more than 50% this year, amid the worst bear market in years. To separate the potentially troubled from the merely cheap, we then screened for companies likely to increase earnings per share -- even if only by a penny -- in 2009. And, to weed out the dangerously debt-encumbered, we looked for companies with long-term obligations of less than 50% of total capitalization. You'll find the "survivors" -- an eclectic 11 -- listed nearby.
