'20 Stocks with the Potential to Pop' Outpops the S&P

Each quarter near the end of the earnings season, CNBC's Analytics team publishes a list of 20 stocks in the S&P 500 trading at the greatest premiums or discounts to their analysts’ consensus target prices.

Since the latest “20 Stocks with the Potential to Pop” series was published on March 4, 2011, the entire group posted an average gain of 2.5 percent. That compares to the overall S&P 500, which is down -0.37 percent over the same period.

Seven stocks on the list are up over 9 percent, with Gamestop taking the first spot, up nearly 38 percent, while 4 of the 5 biggest losers are technology companies.

Here is a look at how the entire group performed since it was published, and make sure to be on lookout for the new list, which will be available on cnbc.com this afternoon.
