Do you like the growth aspects of emerging markets such as China? For a closer look at US-traded Chinese stocks, we ran a screen.

We began by screening for U.S.-traded stocks of companies based in China for those with high-growth, or 5-year projected EPS growth above 20%. We then screened these names for those that also appear undervalued relative to EPS trends.

Based on the assumption that P/E is equal to a constant k, increases in EPS should be matched by increases in price. When they don't match up, a mispricing may have occurred. That is, stocks seeing faster increases in EPS than price may be undervalued.
