Tech stocks are flying sky-high and many believe that we’re in a bubble, similar to the one experienced in 1999. As such, tech stocks have been receiving most of the attention lately from investors, as the sector has skyrocketed since March 23rd.
However, there are a number of undervalued stocks that are being ignored and that could see a significant rebound in the second half of 2020…
To find the best undervalued stocks, I focused on three metrics:
- I only looked at stocks that have a year-over-year quarterly EPS growth rate of over 25%.
- I narrowed down that list by considering stocks with a trailing 12-month price/earnings ratio of 15 or under and a Price/Earnings to Growth ratio of under one. This resulted in a list of 150 stocks.
- I then selected three stocks that had a Buy rating or higher in the exclusive StockNews POWR Ratings system.
