Five stocks with a history of earnings growth that are trading near 52-week lows

Finding value in the stock market can be hard. Top performers can become overvalued quickly and some stocks that seem to have attractive valuations are cheap for a reason. We've compiled a list of companies that have five-year earnings growth rates above 20%, but are also trading at 125% or less of their 52-week lows.

Five-year earnings growth doesn't mean these companies haven't seen some rough patches in over that span, but does indicate that management and the underlying business has been able to grow across several years.

Trading at close to a 52-week low isn't always a buy signal, but we've tried to weed out the bad apples to focus on stocks with solid underlying businesses that are a low point in their recent trading ranges. Some of these stocks fell after lowering earnings guidance or some other bad news, but I've chosen to highlight only the ones that I believe have reached a bottom.
