Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.Big Lots ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 8.9%. Following is Target with a forward earnings yield of 7.3%. Family Dollar Stores ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 7.1%.


Fred's follows with a forward earnings yield of 6.8%, and Dollar Tree rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 6.4%.
