If you screen the market for stocks that more than double the earnings return that 20-year high-quality corporate bonds are yielding to their holders, you could enhance your chance to discover value opportunities. These bonds, which represent corporate loans issued by triple-A, double-A and single-A companies, are offering a 3.18% monthly return to their holders as of June.

Thus, investors may be interested in the following stocks, as they have earnings returns of more than 6.36% and price-earnings ratios below 15.72.
