Investors love two things, growth and value. Combine the two and you can be looking at big returns. With this in mind we screened for stocks that met the following criteria:

- EPS growth over 15% for past 5 years
- EPS growth over 15% for next 5 years
- PEG ratio below 1

The PEG ratio is the P/E ratio divided by annual EPS growth. This helps determine the stocks value while taking into account growth.

Another criteria we used to narrow the search was focusing on mid cap stocks. Looking at the 5 year average returns of the S&P Mid-CAP 400 Index vs. the S&P 500 Index shows returns of 4.75% and 1.58% respectively.

Our screening produced these value stocks that have experienced strong previous growth and have equally strong projected growth:
