Screening for stocks with compelling Shiller price-earnings ratios increases the likelihood of unearthing value opportunities, in my opinion. Thus, investors may want to consider the three stocks listed below, as their Shiller price-earnings ratios are trading lower than the S&P 500 Index's historical average of 16.78 as of Feb. 12.

Allstate Corp

The first company to consider is Allstate Corp (

ALL, Financial), a Northbrook, Illinois-based provider of insurance products to clients in North America.

The share price has declined by 15.97% over the past year for a market capitalization of $31.77 billion and a 52-week range of $64.13 to $125.92.
