The following is a list of undervalued stocks, with Price to Earnings Growth (PEG) ratios below 1. In addition, all of these stocks trade at a deep discount to the average analyst target price (used as a proxy for fair value).

We'll be the first to admit that this is a very naive way to find undervalued companies. Analysts don't always have the best track record, and price targets may not reflect the latest information on a stock. But the goal here is to give you a starting point for your own analysis.

Analysts seem to think these companies are deeply undervalued, what do you think? Full details below.
