4 Stocks Under $10 to Buy for a Market Bounce            

NYSE: WIT | Wipro Limited  News, Ratings, and Charts

WIT – Despite the inflationary pressures and supply chain constraints surrounding the globe, weak job growth reports and breakout of Omicron variant made the witness a pullback last Friday. However, falling jobless claims and energy prices could make the markets rebound soon. Thus, it could be wise to bet on low-priced stocks Wipro (WIT), ICL Group (ICL), Information Services (III), and Radiant Logistics (RLGT) with immense growth potential now.

Increasing concerns about inflation, supply chain constraints, a weak job figure for November, the Federal Reserve’s hawkish monetary policy, and the emergence of highly transmissible omicron coronavirus variants resulted in a market sell-off last Friday.

Although major indexes rebounded earlier this week, these factors could keep the markets under pressure in the near term. However, the U.S. Labor Department announced today that jobless claims for last week were the lowest since 1969. This, combined with falling energy prices and efforts to ease supply chain bottlenecks, should enable the markets to recover.

As a result, it is wise to bet on fundamentally-sound stocks Wipro Limited (WIT), ICL Group Ltd (ICL), Information Services Group, Inc. (III), and Radiant Logistics, Inc. (RLGT), that are each currently trading below $10. These companies have the potential to cash in on their industry tailwinds in the near term.
