Analysts and experts often advise against choosing stocks solely based on their price tags. They recommend investors to evaluate stock prices based on their underlying business fundamentals and valuation metrics. But it's also a fact that budget limitations force beginner investors to filter out stocks based on their price tags. The good thing is that one can find strong companies trading for lower price tags with long-term growth potential. But how to find such companies? Insider Monkey's database of 910 hedge funds shows there are many companies trading under $50 in which hedge funds are piling into. In this article we will look at some under-$50 stocks popular among hedge funds.

While the likes of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) offer an exciting way of gaining exposure to burgeoning technology stocks, their premium valuation is always a big distraction. With the stocks trading for hundreds of dollars, they are sometimes beyond the reach of most beginner investors.
