Growth at cheap price ratios is one the keys for a successful long-term investment.

A cheap stock is the basis for every future returns. Beside cheap fundamentals and pricing ratios of a company, the expected growth is an additional important item for investors. After the ongoing turbulence due to the euro debt crises and the fiscal cliff in America, there should be some bargains in relation to growth right now.

I made a screen of America’s cheapest large-capitalized stocks with highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year. Stocks from the sheet have a market capitalization of more than USD10 billion and earnings per share are expected to grow at least 15 percent. Despite the strong growth, they still have a P/E ratio of less than 15 and a P/S and P/B ratio of less than two. Eleven companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which ten companies have a buy or better recommendation. Nine of the results pay dividends.

Here are my favorites:
