Four undervalued stocks overseas to consider as imports likely rise

Stocks in this article: CXDC IBA SNE GFA

By James Dennin for Kapitall.

The trade gap unexpectedly shrank this quarter, which is  even more unexpected given the serious cash  American broadcasters sent overseas for rights to the World Cup.  

US imports fell off, mostly a result of a decline in energy imports, prompting some to argue the US is moving more quickly than previously thought toward energy independence. 

That being said, the surprise drop off makes a spike in imports more likely, particularly given that US consumer and industrial spending is expected to rise over the next several months. 

That, and a relatively competitive US economic position compared to other advanced nations means that overseas companies with extra US exposure could benefit. 

With that in mind we screened American Deposit Receipts (ADRs, foreign stocks that trade on US exchanges) that were either in consumer spending or industrial markets. We then found undervalued companies that fill this bill using the levered free cash to enterprise value ratio (LFCF/EV). 

This suggests that the company has a lot of extra cash relative to other companies its size, after accounting for tax and debt payments. 

Do you think rising US imports could boost these overseas names? Use the list below to begin your analysis, and let us know what you think in the comments.
