Yesterday, 56 companies’ share price reached a new 52-week low. Of these companies, these are the ones that may present an opportunity at the current price:

Duff & Phelps (DUF)

Duff & Phelps has evolved over the years to become a financial services firm with a focus on financial advisory and investment banking services. Its financial advisory segment, which offers valuation advisory and corporate finance consulting services, is at the core of Duff & Phelps' offerings and accounts for more than four fifths of its revenue. Investment banking services make up the rest.

Hancock Holding (HBHC)

Hancock Holding is a holding company for Hancock Bank, Hancock Bank Louisiana, Hancock Bank Alabama, and Hancock Bank Florida, which together operate more than 150 banking offices. The banks provide savings, checking, money market, and individual retirement accounts, as well as certificates of deposit. The company's banks also originate real estate, business, and consumer loans. Hancock Holding's subsidiaries offer insurance, discount brokerage services, and mutual funds.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)

Johnson & Johnson ranks as the world's largest and most diverse health-care company. The company comprises three divisions: pharmaceutical, medical devices and diagnostics, and consumer. While the pharmaceutical division currently represents 40% of total sales, we expect patent losses to reduce this proportion to 30% over the next 10 years, with the remaining divisions picking up equal share.
