Scandal Stocks

Description:

From Forbes:
"Want a cheap growth stock? Get one tainted by an investigation into options backdating."

"A stock damaged by scandal can be a great buy...Here we list 8 stocks that are cheap, scandal-hobbled stocks that could recover nicely. We started with 85 companies under backdating scrutiny. Then we refined the list by kicking out companies with per-share declines in either sales or operating cash flow over the past three years. A company also had to be cheap in relation to its growth rate. More precisely, we wanted to see an annualized growth in sales over the past three years that was higher, in percentage points, than the enterprise multiple."
