January 23, 2019 | About:

If you screen for stocks that are outperforming 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds in terms of higher return, you can increase your chances of success.

Therefore, the list is composed of companies that have a price-earnings ratio of 10.48 or lower as of Jan. 22 The price-earnings ratio is the inverse of the earnings return. Further, these companies are publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

The first company is Dynex Capital Inc. (NYSE:DX) with a price-earnings ratio of 3.55 versus an industry median of 15.5.

The closing price on Tuesday was 18.3% above the 52-week low of $15.77 and 3.5% below the 52-week high of $19.32.
