Do you consider yourself a value investor, always looking for potentially undervalued names? Here's a list with that idea in mind.

We began by screening for stocks that appear highly undervalued: those with PEG ratios below 1 and P/FCF ratios below 15.

Then we screened for those with bullish sentiment from short sellers, with significant decreases in shares shorted month-over-month. This indicates that short sellers are less bearish on these names than they were a month ago.
