Below is a screen of stocks from Finviz with filters including a P/B below 2, down 10% or more for the week, and up 30% or more in the last half of the year. The idea was to find stocks that have a good relative performance, are down dramatically, and are reasonably valued. Thus, the current fall may not be warranted.

Axcelis Technologies (NASDAQ:ACLS)

The maker of equipment for the chip industry has a low price/sales ratio of 0.84. Both the vertical purple line and the green line show when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock started its rise.

China GengSheng Minerals (NYSEMKT:CHGS)

The heat-resistant products maker seems to have been confused as a rare earths play. But the stock is selling for 0.91 times book value. PEG is a very low 0.47. The orange line, vertical purple line, and brown line show when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock was neutral, rose, and fell respectively. But be warned that there has been increased fraud activity in the smallcap China space.

Crosshair Exploration & Mining (CXZ)

The uranium, gold and vanadium miner is poised to benefit from the rise of all three metals. And at 1.10 times book value, it seems reasonably priced. The vertical purple line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock started its rise.

Denison Mines (NYSEMKT:DNN)

The tiny uranium miner seems to be a good value at 1.12 times book value and quarter-over-quarter sales growth of 212%. The vertical purple line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock started its rise.

Magic Software (NASDAQ:MGIC)

The company had a magical run this past year, with a nearly 300% yield. But valuations and potential say it still has more room to run. This Israeli cloud computing company still trades at a reasonable PEG of 1.97. The vertical purple line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock started its rise.

Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG)

The stock’s poor longterm performance makes this alternative fuel maker very speculative and not a long term buy. But quarter-over-quarter sales growth rose 126%, a high number. The vertical purple line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the stock rose. But the orange line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the price dropped.

RAIT Financial Trust (NYSE:RAS)

I am skeptical about this stock because financials are still struggling. However, REITs are staging a comeback. Operating margin is very high at 40%, and PEG is very low at 0.14. The vertical purple line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the price rose. But the orange line shows when the technicals were at similar levels, and the price dropped.

UR-Energy (NYSEMKT:URG)

The small uranium miner is trading for 1.89 times book value, a reasonable valuation, and short ratio is only 0.21, low for a speculative stock. Plus, EPS is expected to rise 112%, very high for any company. The vertical purple line shows that the last time the technicals were at similar levels, the stock started its rise.
