These 5 Stocks Under $5 Appear Undervalued By EPS Trends

Stock quotes in this article: FBP, NMR, NSU, PT, TC

Interested in finding undervalued stocks in a low price range? For ideas on where to look, we ran a screen you might be interested in.

We screened for stocks under $5 that appear undervalued relative to EPS trends. Based on the theoretical assumption that if P/E is equal to a constant K, growth in EPS estimates should be matched by proportionate growth in price. When they don’t match up, a mispricing may have occurred. We screened for those exhibiting this mismatch between changes in EPS estimate and price.
