Large cap growth stocks are still making new highs, but what about the small caps? They are still lagging, especially small cap value. However, historically, small cap value stocks have been one of the best-performing equity asset classes.

Maybe it’s time to take a look at some top small cap stocks that are also on sale?

Screening for Small Cap Stocks with Growth and Value

If you’re going to buy small cap value stocks, why not also get some growth along with it? It’s a rare combination but also a powerful one.

Zacks has the perfect premium screen for this. It screens for stocks with a market cap below $1 billion which have last closed above $5.

It looks for a growth rate above 20% and, for value, it screens for stocks with a price-to-sales ratio under 1.0. A P/S ratio under 1.0 usually means a company is undervalued.

Additionally, adding a top Zacks Rank of Buy or Strong Buy should give you stocks where analysts have been revising their earnings estimates higher for this year.
