Stocks to Buy in August, No. 4:  Companhia Siderúrgica

Our valuation system ranks steel giant Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (NYSE: SID) as a top stock to buy right now.

This firm is the second-largest steel producer in Brazil, and it's been a terrific month for SID shareholders.

Since July 11, the stock has jumped nearly 33% on the back of U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum originating from NAFTA countries, the European Union, and China.

This Brazilian firm, which ships just 6% of its steel to the United States, is likely to see rising demand from nations that have retaliated against U.S. tariffs and need to find supply from cheaper sources.

The next stock on our list not only pays a dividend with a 5.18% yield, its share price could also appreciate by double-digits in the next 12 months...

Stocks to Buy in August, No. 3:  Entercom Communications

Entercom Communications (NYSE: ETM) is the second-largest operator of radio stations in the United States after merging last fall with CBS Corp. (NYSE: CBS) Radio.

The merger expanded Entercom's nationwide footprint from 127 stations to 235 stations in 47 U.S. markets.

And what's most intriguing about this company right now is its rock-solid dividend and price-to-book (P/B) value.

A P/B value below one is an indication a stock may be undervalued.

ETM pays a dividend of $0.36 (5.18% yield), and its P/B value is 0.58, which is a deep discount compared to the industry average of 1.3.

Stocks to Buy in August, No. 2:  Vivint Solar

The company is among the fastest-growing solar companies in the United States and is poised for significant revenue growth as Americans turn to renewable energy sources.

And while Wall Street may be overlooking VSLR, a $42 billion investment giant has total faith in the company...

The Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX), the private equity giant that brought Vivint public in 2014, has never sold a share of the solar company's stock.

This signals incredible confidence from one of the top institutional investors on the planet.

In the next 12 months, analysts at Oppenheimer expect the VSLR stock price will trade for $7 per share.

From today's price of $5.40, that's a potential profit of 29.62%.

And while these are all excellent long-term plays, we saved the most exciting for last.

When the bets turn too much in one direction, it begins to create a deeply valued stock that provides incredible upside.

Melvin believes that buying TIPT now could lead to a 300% return.
