Deep Dive: 28 cheap stocks expected to post the fastest earnings growth in 2018 vs. 2017

In a recent interview, Erick Ormsby, the founder of Alcosta Capital Management, looked ahead by a year and based several stock picks on companies expected to post double-digit earnings growth in 2018. The companies were also trading at relatively low price-to-forward earnings valuations.

So we decided to follow up by applying similar criteria to the entire S&P 500 Index SPX, -0.35%

It may seem strange to look ahead to 2018 so early in 2017, but it makes sense for long-term investors because some themes can take a long time to play out. Banks, for example, are expected to become much more profitable as interest rates rise, because rates on their loan portfolios will increase faster than their funding costs.
