By the Numbers: Stocks Undervalued Stocks With Wide Moats Undervalued stocks with significant competitive advantages can make attractive long-term holdings. With that in mind, we scoured our 2,000-plus stock coverage universe for high-quality stocks (those boasting wide economic moats) that are trading on the cheap (rated 4 or 5 stars by our analysts). Our analysts award wide economic moats to companies that they believe possess durable competitive advantages that are likely to confer economic profits well into the future. When a stock trades at a suitably wide discount to our estimate, we award it 4 or 5 stars. The wider the discount, the higher the star rating, and vice versa. There were 48 stocks that fit that profile as of Feb. 29, 2012, 12 fewer than made the list on Dec. 31, 2011.
