Top 5 Bargain Stocks in the S&P 500

NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- There are two kinds of value investors. Some focus on the income statement and search for stocks that trade at a low valuation in relation to earnings, while others seek out value on the balance sheet via companies that have a market value lower than the book value (or shareholder's equity).

On occasion, though, you'll come across companies that appeal to both crowds. In the S&P 500, there are 36 companies that trade for less than book value and also trade for less than 10 times projected 2013 profits.
