The GuruFocus special feature 52-week low screener reveals that Heineken N.V. (HEINY), Syngenta AG (SYT) and Nissan Motor (NSANY) are currently at or near a 52-week low. These stocks are highlighted because, contrary to their global brand recognition, the guru ownership is fairly light. It is a curiosity especially in the case of Nissan, since the sole guru stakeholder Ken Fisher averaged a 90% gain over a five-year history.

With one foot in the future, Nissan Motor has designed working prototypes that claim to turn driving into gliding. Their future car designs will build on Nissan’s passion for zero-emission technology and the Nissan LEAF, the best-selling all-electric vehicle in history. Over 87,000 Nissan LEAF cars are on the road, according to a company press release.
