10 Mining Stocks Trading at Deep Discounts

Stocks in this article: STLD JRCC TX WLT TCK FCX PKX

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Steel Dynamics (STLD - Get Report), James River Coal (JRCC - Get Report), Ternium (TX - Get Report), Walter Energy (WLT - Get Report), Teck Resources (TCK - Get Report), Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX - Get Report), POSCO (PKX - Get Report), Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), Rio Tinto (RIO) and Vale (VALE) are a few mining-related stocks trading at deep discounts. The stocks have upside potential of 21%-50%, based on analysts' consensus estimates of 12-month price targets.

A sharp demand for commodities, underpinned by the economic recovery, has sparked off a rally in metal prices, which augurs well for mining stocks. The SPDR S&P Metals and Mining ETF (XME) outperformed broader markets, surging 26% during the last one year, while the S&P 500 Index gained 15% in the same period.

The following 10 mining stocks are trading at price-to-projected earnings of less than 11 and received average analysts' buy ratings of 81%. The selected stocks have potential to deliver up to 50% return over the next one year.

Even though Metalico (MEA), Eldorado Gold (EGO), Royal Gold (RGLD) and Kinross Gold (KGC) are expected to return in excess of 30% in the next one year, we did not consider them as they are trading at an average price-to-projected earnings of around 26.

The stocks are stacked from cheap to cheapest based on forward earnings multiples.
