In order to increase the likelihood of uncovering bargains, investors should screen for stocks whose share prices are below their intrinsic value according to the projected free cash flow valuation model.

Unlike the discounted cash flow or discounted earnings valuation models, the projected free cash flow model can be used for companies whose record of revenue and earnings is not consistent and may include losses in some quarters. The projected free cash flow uses normalized free cash flow and book value.

Thus, investors may be interested in the following listed securities, as they appear undervalued according to the projected free cash flow model and have also received positive recommendation ratings from Wall Street sell-side analysts.

UBS Group

The first stock that qualifies is UBS Group AG (

UBS, Financial), the Swiss diversified bank giant.

The stock was trading at a price of $12.29 per share at close on Friday, which represents a discount of 35.5% to the projected free cash flow of $19.06.

The share price has risen 10.3% over the past year for a market capitalization of $43.9 billion and a 52-week range of $7.48 to $13.49.
