One financial metric that indicates whether a company is undervalued is the forward price/earnings ratio. This a financial ratio that illustrates the “markets” future earnings expectations of a company. A lower P/E ratios is generally favored.

One Year Revenue Growth by Percentage (TTM) is an indicator that gives investors an idea of how well the firm is performing in the recent past economic environment. Given the current market speculation this isn’t an indicator that should be overlooked.

We ran a screen on tech companies that had a low forward P/E (Equal to or less than 10) Next, we decided to screen for companies had strong top line growth in this tough economic environment (X>20).
