I always look for stocks with a cheap valuation and modest growth perspectives. While the interest environment is low, the market valuation is extraordinary high and it’s more important to take care about a solid price in order to ensure not to overpay a stocks.

Each month I create a quick list that allows me to observe the market by the cheapest growth picks. You can find my criteria below.

- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Expected Earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next five years

- Positive Dividends

Only 14 stocks fulfilled these criteria of which twelve have a current buy or better rating by brokerage firms.
