    According to the GuroFocus list of 52-week lows, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Inc. (NYSE:TEVA) and Cigna Corp. (NYSE:CI) are two stocks that are within 5% of 52-week lows and are owned by 21 gurus.


    Most stocks that are near 52-week lows present great opportunities for investors. Gurus own these stocks in their portfolios due to the following positive signs: low P/B and P/S ratios, expanding operating margins and consistent per share revenue growth.
