In my opinion, investors could be interested in the three stocks listed below, as they meet the following criteria:

  1. Their price-earnings ratios trade below 20.
  2. Their earnings and revenue, both on a per share basis, have improved over the past five years, while no losses were posted during the observed period.
  3. These stocks have positive recommendation ratings among sell-side analysts on Wall Street.
