2 of the Cheapest Stocks I Own

In the stock market, there are essentially two reasons stocks go up. This is known as multiple expansion when a valuation multiple, such as a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) expands, and multiple compression when it goes down. Because of multiple expansion, it's much easier for a cheap stock to outperform an expensive stock, assuming they are otherwise comparable, so it makes sense for investors to look for cheap stocks, especially at a time like this when so many stocks are down sharply.
