This will depend mainly how much you are willing to hold and lose on it. The price is typically the best indicator for long term value, but if a stock has been undervalued, it may be wise to wait until a higher price comes along.
If you have your eyes on a stock long term, or a small-sized company that will eventually go public, the long-term value of a stock may be very high. If the stock rises and then has a bad year and then falls, you may feel better having bought the stock early in its stock price, when it was a better investment. This has the advantage of making you hold for longer.
A short-term value is when you buy at the low price and sell off to the high price. A short-term risk is when you sell the stock before it passes the valuation level.
Stocks of a certain sector, such as pharmaceuticals, have a high likelihood to pass the valuation level. Other times, these companies hold value very well.

With a little help from its investors and a $2 million grant, a local non-profit is preparing to launch an experiment this fall that will test if a new kind of food will help reverse the ravages of Alzheimer’s.
To make this work, Alinea Foods of Pasadena has partnered with Southern California Public Schools, CalFresh, and the Alzheimer’s Association to build a pilot project that would replicate what happens in their homes: the food gets warmed up and eaten on the second floor of a classroom, and then the student is allowed to leave and return later to eat the food.
One day, there will be a “cognitively enriched” environment where some of the students can play with the food, while the teachers can feed the “healthy-eating students” — children with no known conditions for Alzheimer’s, like autism, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
At first, the food won’t be labeled according to the symptoms that develop when someone with Alzheimer’s develops them. Instead, the school districts and CalFresh will decide which foods are best or are the least harmful to the students, based on the food items that are most popular.
There is a $60,000 dollar grant program available to CalFresh to help raise the funds. It’s been funded since 2008, and this will be the latest in a series of grant programs the Alzheimer’s Association has launched to help people living with the disease. The
