The following is a list of undervalued stocks, as defined by the discount of the current price to the average analyst target price. All of these stocks are scheduled to report earnings over the next 5 days.

We started with a universe of stocks releasing earnings this week, and then narrowed it down by only focusing on stocks that are trading at deep discounts to the average analyst target price (used as a proxy for fair value).

Yes, this is a very crude way to identify undervalued stocks, and there are many limitations to this approach. But the goal here is to give you a starting point for your own analysis.
