Do you consider yourself a value investor? For ideas on how to search for potentially undervalued stocks, we ran a screen you may find interesting.

We began by screening for stocks that appear undervalued by two measures: PEG below 1 and P/FCF below 15. We then searched for those on winning streaks, i.e. stocks that may be pricing in a fairer value.

We screened for those on winning streaks over the last month, with a persistence of days in which the stock beat the S&P 500 and little persistence of days in which it underperformed the S&P 500. We measured this by the ratio of days of its longest winning streak over the past month over the number of days of its longest losing streak.
