Price alone doesn’t always classify a stock as cheap but when solid growth is expected and valuation fundamentals indicate the equity is undervalued it’s usually time to buy.

Considering this scenario, here is a look at three top-rated Zacks stocks that are starting to come off as cheap. 

Harmony Gold (HMY)

Harmony Gold is starting to stand out with the gold mining company sporting a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Based in South Africa, Harmony Gold conducts underground and surface gold mining along with exploration, processing, smelting, and refining.

With Harmony stock trading at $4, earnings are forecasted to jump 15% this year and skyrocket another 142% in FY24 at $0.92 per share. The anticipated growth helps confirm Harmony stock is undervalued at 12X forward earnings which is well below its industry average of 21.5X and the S&P 500’s 20.6X.
