Ready For Earnings Reports This Week: 4 Stocks With Strong Sales And ROI

First we considered  sales growth quarter-over-quarter, which looks at how much the company added to sales in the past three months. Then we looked for signs that these stocks have performed well for investors – by looking at the return on investment (ROI) - which measures how good a company is at generating profits for investors.

Next, we looked at price-to-equity ratios (P/E), which measures how expensive each dollar of equity is for investors. This is a possible indicator that a company is undervalued, although P/E ratios vary industry to industry.

And to finally narrow down our list even more, we looked for companies with low debt levels, an indicator of long-term health, as indicated by the long-term debt to equity ratio (LTDebt/Equity). 

We were left with 4 stocks on our list.
