Popular high-flyers like the Magnificent Seven tend to cause tunnel vision in investors. Investors then focus solely on trending stocks and miss other value opportunities in the market. Even if some undervalued stocks have not yet taken flight, a closer look at their performance and underlying drivers can help spot some diamonds in the rough. Sure, they might not be glittering just yet. However, keeping tabs and learning about their competitive advantages can yield a home run.

However, we know that spotting an excellent bargain can be challenging. You would have to spend time and effort comparing companies left and right. One effective way is to look at sector leaders who are lagging despite having stellar financial performance and market resiliency.  If you are still unsure where to look, these three undervalued stocks are a good start.

Immersion Corporation (IMMR)

If you are a gaming fan, you might not be aware that Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ:IMMR) plays a big role in the industry. The company develops and licenses haptic technology. This has many uses including gaming, virtual and augmented reality, entertainment, wearables, and more. Its partnership with Sony for the PS5’s haptic feedback and Nintendo’s Rumble are just some of the company’s known successes.

IMMR’s latest financials show promise. Total revenues grew by 13% to $10.4 million in Q4, driven by increased royalty and license revenues. GAAP net income declined to $16 million in Q4 from $19.7 million last year. However, the company’s full-year net income rose to $34.0 million compared to $30.7 million last year.

Interestingly, IMMR has demonstrated a commitment to rewarding shareholders through dividends and enhancing investment returns. I say it’s interesting, because it’s not every day you run into a microcap thinking about shareholder value. Maybe that’s why Immersion Corp has several analysts’ stamp of approval.

If they play their cards right and continue to be a leader in haptics while maintaining strong relationships with big players like Sony and Nintendo, IMMR could be one of the most undervalued stocks in the market.
