New 5-Star Stocks

These names are all significantly undervalued by our standards after the market rout.

Editor’s note: Read the latest on how the coronavirus is rattling the markets and what investors can do to navigate it.

Fueled by ongoing coronavirus concerns, the market experienced its worst session since 1987 on Monday, with the S&P 500 skidding nearly 12%.

Long-term investors often view volatility as their friend: A market downturn can provide a chance to increase our positions in existing holdings or initiate new positions in stocks we’ve been eyeing. In a lengthy and wide-ranging interview with CNBC in late February (as the market was down about 3%), Warren Buffett acknowledged that the coronavirus will have a near-term impact on companies that he owns, but he also noted that it likely won't make a difference when it comes to their 10- or 20-year outlooks. He added that if the market gives you an opportunity to buy something you like for far less than it was the day before, you're in luck.

Dozens of companies that our analysts cover edged into 5-star range yesterday--which means they're significantly undervalued by our measures. Don't think of this as a list of "buys," though. Instead, think of it as a collection of names to investigate further.
