For an investor, it is important to have some stocks with rising earnings per share in order to boost the portfolio value. It is more important to have cheap stocks with growing earnings figures. This should maximize the expected profit of a share deal.

I screened the capital market by cheap large capitalized stocks that have the highest expected growth for fiscal 2012. Stocks from the screen have a market capitalization of more than USD 10 billion and an expected earnings growth of at least 20 percent for the next year, but have a price to earnings ratio of less than 20 and a price to sales ratios of less than 2.

As result, 34 companies remained, of which 28 percent pay dividends and 10 have a dividend yield of more than 3 percent.

Here are my 3 most promising stocks from the screening results:

The company has a market capitalization of USD 24.7 billion, generates revenues in an amount of USD 13.5 billion and an income of USD 1.3 billion.
