Selecting stocks whose earnings returns are more than double the monthly spot rate of the 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds enhances the probability to unearth high-return investments, in my opinion. These investment-grade bonds represent corporate loans issued by triple-A, double-A and single-A rated companies.

Since these bonds are offering a monthly spot rate of 3.51% as of the writing of this article, the following three stocks may attract investors, as their earnings returns are more than 7.02% at price-earnings ratios of less than 14.25.
