2.33 0.53 0.59 0.09 1.41

This list is derived from the Free Stock Screener over at sister site TradingStockAlerts.com. It was set up by simply choosing the Value preset and then selecting a Bullish Reversal in the Simple Trend Reversal drop-down.

All are profitable. All are seeing increasing sales. Basic valuation measures range from reasonable to deep value. Sutor Technology Group and Telestone Technologies, being Chinese micro-cap companies, are heavily out of favor these days, thus the extremely low valuation levels. Sutor is doing well enough that they have announced they are buying back stock. Telestone announced good earnings a couple of weeks ago. Could be something attractive for a brave investor in one of these stocks.

More traditional is Complete Production Services who recently turned in a stellar earnings report. This energy-related company displays solid fundamentals across the board and was listed as a Zacks #1 rank (strong buy) back in the middle of August. With the market and the price of oil recovering in the last week or so, Complete Production Services could attract more buying interest. Keep an eye on this one.

Interactive Ads - Google one-ups Yahoo again

Google's ( GOOG ) press release describing the expansion of a beta program for what are being called Gadget Ads has again shown that Google is unparalleled at melding technology and advertising to benefit its bottom line. Gadget Ads are mini-web pages or "widgets" that can be embedded within publisher pages. I have written in the past on Yahoo's ( YHOO ) Smart Ads and how, by more precisely targeting site users and adjusting ad content accordingly, they provide a much desired evolution of the banner or display ad format. Though Smart Ads and Gadget Ads are not really the same, I think it is fair to say that Google has seen the challenge of Smart Ads and has chosen to leapfrog Yahoo by rolling out its own update to the display ad format. The evolution of the Gadget Ad -- One of the trends on the Internet over the last year or so involves software developers creating "widgets" which can be hosted within web pages and blogs. Widgets can be pretty much any
