Do you consider yourself a value investor, always searching for potentially undervalued names? For ideas on how to start your own value search, we ran a screen.

We began by screening for stocks with high growth projections, with 5-year projected EPS growth rates above 15%, that are also trading between $1 and $5 a share.

Then we screened for bullish sentiment from institutional investors, with significant net institutional purchases over the last quarter representing at least 5% of share float. This indicates that institutional investors such as hedge fund managers and mutual fund managers, which often have more sophisticated market data on hand than main street investors, expect these names to outperform.
