Most news observers, even casual ones, were aware of two big news stories last week - the pope's visit to America and Volkswagen 's ( VOW ) apparent manipulation of diesel emission results.
German-based Volkswagen is the second-largest automaker in the world; when it has a problem, aftershocks within the auto sector are to be expected . The more severe the problem is, the more severe the aftershocks are, and this problem has been severe enough to force Volkswagen's CEO to resign.
The resignation of such a high-ranking company official is not an everyday occurrence. Will there be ripple effects for other companies trading in Germany? Are there bargains waiting to be found by investors?
Premium members of GuruFocus can use the All-In-One Screener to detect undervalued stocks in Europe and, to be more specific, which ones are trading in Germany.
To narrow my search to European stocks, I clicked on the box that was labeled Europe. This produced a list of 17 undervalued stocks in the European region. I wanted to narrow it further, to see which ones traded in the German market so I went to the dropdown box listing 19 European countries and selected Germany. That produced two undervalued stocks .
