The stock market witnessed a substantial surge on Tuesday, driven by the release of October CPI data indicating a slowdown in inflation. Both month-over-month and core CPI remained below expectations, boosting investor confidence in the possibility of the Fed halting rate hikes and even considering rate cuts in the latter half of 2024.

As the market continues to rebound from the October lows, it’s crucial for investors to capitalize on the potential upside for the remainder of the year. However, the pursuit of stocks with reasonable valuations is a prudent approach, especially amidst lofty market conditions. Today, we present a method to identify stocks with robust value and improving earnings prospects.

Screen Methodology

This screening method, executed through the Research Wizard, focuses on extracting highly-ranked Zacks stocks with exceptional value attributes. The criteria include Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buys) or #2 (Buys), price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-sales (P/S) ratios under the industry medians, and quarterly earnings rates above the industry median. Additionally, the screen’s proprietary algorithm incorporates upgrades and estimates revisions to filter the best seven stocks.

Identified Stocks
