Top Large Cap Growth Stocks Presenting Value to Investors

Wall St. Watchdog generated a stock screen of attractively-priced, growing large cap stocks.  Criteria for this screen are:

  • The company’s stock trades on a US exchange (ADRs are acceptable).
  • The company’s stock is not traded on the Pink sheets.
  • The ratio of current EV / EBITDA is less than 5.  (This ensures that the company is not overly leveraged.)
  • Revenue growth for the year-over-year period has been positive.
  • The company is not located in China.  Note that, for the purposes of this screen, companies that are located in Hong Kong can be included.  Hong Kong is a “special administrative region” of China, and, as such, operates under a different political and legal system from mainland China.  There are not as many concerns about fraudulent accounting from Hong Kong-based companies as there are about companies located in mainland China.
  • The ratio of total debt to EBITDA * 2 is less than 1.  We want to make sure that the company generates sufficient operating income, and that its operating income is not consumed by interest payments on debt.
  • The ratio of the stock price to cash flow per share for the trailing 12 months is less than 7.  We’re interested in value here, not necessarily growth.  Some high growth companies have much higher price-to-cash flow ratios.
  • The market capitalization is greater than $10 billion.  These companies provide both value and liquidity.  Admittedly, most companies with a market capitalization of $1 billion or more would have sufficed, but in order to keep this screen to a manageable number of companies, we placed a lower limit of $10 billion on the market capitalization criterion.

Following is information on the companies that match the above criteria.
