Four Best Canadian Value Stocks for 2020

A value stock is like a good quality product available for a low price. Good quality stocks with strong fundamentals — dividends, earnings, sales — and growth potential become value stocks when investors sell them due to short-term fears. An economic downturn is a great buy opportunity for long-term investors as it creates many value stocks.

In the current COVID-19 pandemic-driven downturn, the most valued real estate, utilities, and natural resources stocks have declined to more than five-year lows. This decline has created a significant buy opportunity as these stocks have the potential to grow when the economy revives. We have listed below the top four value stocks with strong growth potential.

The US and China are the two major semiconductor markets. They are also the epicenters of coronavirus.
