Buying cheap stocks today may not be an appealing idea to many investors. After all, the prospects for the global economy continue to be very uncertain. And some companies may struggle to adapt to changing consumer tastes in a post-coronavirus world.

Cheap stocks that account for future risks

Some cheap stocks are priced at low levels for good reason. But others appear to be suffering from weak investor sentiment towards their wider industry and stock market. For example, some companies have solid balance sheets, strong cash flow and strategies that could produce improving financial performances in the coming years. Yet they have valuations that, in some cases, were last seen during the global financial crisis.

I’d buy cheap UK shares in an ISA today to retire on a growing passive income

The stock market crash may have dissuaded some investors from buying cheap UK shares through which to build an ISA portfolio for retirement. However, now could be the right time to take advantage of low valuations across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250.

Over time, they may deliver impressive returns that outperform other mainstream assets. They could produce a surprisingly large retirement portfolio that provides a generous passive income in older age.

Buying cheap UK shares today

The main advantage of buying cheap UK shares today is that they could offer greater scope for growth than they’ve done over recent years. In many cases, high-quality businesses are trading at low prices because they face weak trading conditions in the short run. This means that investors can purchase such companies at low prices, which can be a means of achieving higher capital returns as they recover.

Although a recovery is

I’m not waiting for a second stock market crash! 2 cheap UK shares I’d buy in my ISA today

Investor appetite for UK shares remains weak following early 2020’s stock market crash. Sure, the FTSE 100, for example, has regained the psychologically important milestone of 6,000 points in recent days. But Britain’s blue-chip index might struggle to gain more ground as we move into the latter stages of 2020.

Significant economic uncertainty is prompting investors to remain sat on the sidelines as the coronavirus crisis rolls on. But it seems that many are also keeping their chequebooks firmly under lock and key, waiting for another stock market crash to happen and for them to buy UK shares for even less.

It’s quite possible that UK shares could crash again before long. Aside from the threat to the global economy posed by a second wave of infections, signs of growing trade tensions could also prompt investors to charge for the exits.

6 reasons why I’d avoid the Lloyds share price! I’d rather buy cheap UK shares today

Are there any less-attractive UK shares for investors to go fishing for than Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY)? I’m of the opinion there are very few. In fact, I reckon the FTSE 100 bank could end up costing you a fortune.

First and foremost, it’s worth remembering Lloyds doesn’t seem that compelling at current prices. Many UK shares are trading at historic lows, and plenty currently change hands at their cheapest since the 2008/2009 financial crisis. There are ample opportunities then for eagle-eyed investors to buy in at these cheap levels. And then get rich over the long run as confidence gradually flows back into share markets.

But Lloyds’ share price was tanking long before the Covid-19 crisis emerged. It’s fallen exactly two-thirds in value since the autumn of 2015. And trading conditions threaten to be much worse than they did during the latter half of the last decade.

I’d Buy This Cheap Stock Today! I Reckon Its Share Price Could Still Surge In September

Demand for shares on British stock indices remains extremely weakw. The FTSE 100, for instance has made fractional gains only in September. And this follows a summer during which prices of UK shares on the Footsie retrated in value

There’s a number of factors that could keep demand for UK shares in the gutter. Rising Covid-19 infection rates, and disappointing news on the hunt for a vaccine are the most obvious. Rising trade tensions between the US and other major economies are another, whilst rising civil unrest in the States and heightened political uncertainty in Washington provide reason to be pessimistic.

Throw a rocky Brexit process into the mix, too and there’s clearly plenty of reason why demand for UK shares could remain quite pathetic. The possibility of another stock market crash can’t be ruled out, either. But that doesn’t mean that all British stocks are in danger of

Why buying cheap UK shares today could be a rare opportunity to get rich and retire early

Some cheap UK shares have failed to make successful recoveries following this year’s market crash. Even though the wider stock market has rebounded sharply, a number of companies continue to face difficult operating conditions that are reflected in weak investor sentiment.

While they may take time to deliver a recovery, now could be the right time to buy them. Their low valuations are unlikely to remain in place over the long run. This could translate into high capital returns for new investors that improves their prospects of retiring early.

Forget Bitcoin, gold and buy-to-let! I’d invest money in these 2 cheap UK shares today

Investing in cheap UK shares after the market crash may not be an obvious decision in the eyes of some investors. After all, the uncertain economic outlook may make other assets such as Bitcoin, gold or buy-to-let property seem more appealing due to their stronger recent performances.

However, buying a selection of undervalued British stocks could be a more profitable move in the long run. Their low prices and recovery potential could allow them to outperform more popular assets over the long run.

With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 stocks that appear to offer good value for money. They could be worth buying today.

A buying opportunity among cheap UK shares

Tesco (LSE: TSCO) appears to offer good value for money relative to other cheap UK shares. The company’s forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.5 suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety.
