  • The S&P 500 has rallied to new 2023 highs amid debt ceiling optimism.
  • I used the InvestingPro stock screener to search for undervalued stocks that analysts are still bullish on and have potential ‘Fair Value’ upside of at least 30%.
  • Below is a list of 20 stocks in the S&P 500 which are expected to provide some of the highest returns in the coming months based on the InvestingPro models.

U.S. stocks have rallied this week, with the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ rising to fresh 2023 highs amid growing optimism that a U.S. debt ceiling deal will be reached in time to avert a catastrophic default.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is optimistic that congressional negotiators could reach a deal to raise the $31.4 trillion federal debt ceiling in time to hold the first vote on it next week.

As such, investors will continue to monitor the debt ceiling negotiations for signs that Democrats and Republicans might be inching closer to an agreement, with President Biden cutting short a trip to Asia to return to talks in Washington on Sunday.

So, while things are starting to look more promising on the debt ceiling front, there is still work to do, and still, room for twists in this saga before the Treasury runs out of cash as soon as June 1, which would trigger an unprecedented U.S. debt default.

The ongoing debt ceiling drama has managed to draw attention away from increasing uncertainty about the Federal Reserve's stance on interest rates.

While recent data has indicated some slowing in the U.S. economy, it does not appear to be softening fast enough for the Fed to pause its rate hike cycle, and the market has even priced a 40% chance of a 25-basis-point hike in June, up from less than 10% last week.Fed Rate Monitor Tool

These Favored S&P 500 Stocks Have The Most Upside Potential According to InvestingPro

Amid the current backdrop, I used the InvestingPro stock screener to identify undervalued stocks that Wall Street analysts are still bullish on and have potential ‘Fair Value’ upside of at least 30%.

I first filtered for names with an InvestingPro ‘Fair Value’ upside greater than or equal to 25%. The fair value estimate is determined according to several valuation models, including price-to-earnings ratios, price-to-sales ratios, and price-to-book multiples.

I then scanned for companies that also enjoy potential analyst price target upside greater than or equal to 25%.

And those companies with a market cap of $20 billion and above made my watchlist.

Once the criteria were applied, I was left with a total of 24 companies. Each name boasts a ‘Strong Buy’ rating recommendation and offers significant upside potential based on their Investing Pro ‘Fair Value’ price targets.
