This is the fourth and final article focusing on the stocks with the fastest earnings growth rates for 2012 according to the SteetAuthority report. The first three articles focused on Take Two Interactive (TTWO), Patriot Coal (PCX), Accuride (ACW), and Meritor (MTOR). The final article will focus on the better remaining options.
All of the companies on the list expect earnings to soar more than 100% from fiscal 2011 to 2012. If the numbers are hit, than any of the picks could provide solid stock returns. The remaining list includes Allstate Corp (ALL), with a market cap around $16B, all the way to SMART Modular Tech (SMOD), with only $580M in market cap. All of them have relatively low forward PEs considering they expect earnings to expand by triple digits. The key is to determine which stocks have the potential to expand on these earnings beyond 2012. One-off situations such as ALL aren't as appealing.
