3 Of 13 Cheapest Shares with the Highest EPS Growth for Next Year by Dividend

The most of my readers are looking for high yielding stocks or cheap stocks to buy. It sounds nearly similar because the goal of both is the same. All leads to a high return of your invested capital.

A cheap stock is the basis for every future return. Beside cheap fundamentals and pricing ratios of a company, the expected growth is an additional important item for investors. After the ongoing turbulences 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 the highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year. Stocks from the sheet have a market capitalization of more than USD$10 billion and earnings per share are expected to grow for 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 ratios of less than two.

Thirteen companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which 10 companies have a buy or better recommendation. Eleven of the results pay dividends.

Here are my favorites:

The Travelers Companies (TRV) has a market capitalization of $27.78 billion. The company employs 30,000 people, generates revenue of $25.446 billion and has a net income of $1.426 billion.
