Beside cheap fundamentals and pricing ratios of a company, the expected growth is an additional important item for investors. After the ongoing turbulences due to the euro debt crises and the fiscal cliff in America, there should be some bargains in relation to growth right now.

Stocks from the sheet have a market capitalization of more than USD 10 billion and earnings per share are expected to grow for at least 15 percent. Despite the strong growth, they still have a P/E ratio of less than 15 and a P/S and P/B ratio of less than two. Fourteen companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which thirteen companies have a buy or better recommendation. Eleven of the results pay dividends.

The highest yielding stock is now China Petroleum & Chemical. The company yields at 4.39 percent but long-term earnings are expected to fall by around one percent for the next five years. The best picks by mid-term growth are Mitsui and Honda.
