Peter Lynch is famous not just for his enviable track record as 13-year head of Fidelity Magellan, but also for his quirky investment strategies. The market's best stocks, according to Lynch, are small, growing companies flying below Wall Street's radar.

It makes sense, after all, to pick out the strongest companies that have the greatest chance of being overlooked, and hence, mispriced. As investors, we should all take advice from the man who not only minted fundholders a 28-bagger but actually coined the investing term "-bagger."

With that in mind, we used the CAPS screening tool to find stocks Peter Lynch might love. Below are 10 companies with no more than five CAPS-rated Wall Street analysts calling the stock.

They also have:

  • Three-year trailing earnings-per-share growth above 25%.
  • Price-to-earnings multiples below 30.
  • Market capitalizations below $10 billion.
  • At least 300 CAPS picks.
  • Four- or five-star ratings from our CAPS community.
