    Cheap stocks are the basis for future returns. Beside cheap fundamentals and pricing ratios of a company, the expected growth is an additional important item for investors. After the sell-off at the capital markets and new uncertainty due to the European debt crisies, there should be some bargains in relation to growth right now.

    I screened the capital market by cheap large capitalized stocks - Stocks with a market capitalization of more than $10 billion and an expected earnings growth of at least 25 percent for the next year, but they have a price to earnings ratio of less than 15 and a price to sales and price to book ratio of less than 1.
