Many investors are drawn to low-priced stocks because of the large return potential when share price rises by marginal amounts. For the same reason, investors must be very cautious because a small drop in price means a big decrease. To minimize the list of losses it helps to do your homework. 

We compiled a list of stocks trading below $5 per share, with market caps north of $300 million to avoid the risky penny stocks, and analyzed their EPS trends. 

We took only stocks with faster growth in EPS estimates than price over the last month. Here's why: Based on the theoretical assumption that if P/E is equal to a constant K, growth in EPS estimates should be matched by proportionate growth in price. When they don't match up, a mispricing may have occurred. We screened for those exhibiting this mismatch between changes in EPS estimate and price.
