UPDATE: These cheap stocks could see huge gains during a vaccine-driven economic rebound

By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch

When analysts raise their earnings estimates, shares of some of the hardest-hit companies will begin to bounce back

There's no doubt that the coronavirus economy has been terrible for value stocks. But with expectations growing that there will be effective COVID-19 vaccines late this year or sometime in 2021, it's time to think about which stocks that have been hit so hard this year will soar as earnings expectations normalize.

First, here's a comparison of performance for the benchmark S&P 500 index this year with the Vanguard S&P 500 Growth ETF (VOOG) Vanguard S&P 500 Value ETF (VOOV):

"Many of today's Value stocks have faced particularly acute challenges from the coronavirus and will experience the sharpest rebounds in earnings expectations once investors have confidence in the path to normalization," Goldman Sachs chief U.S. equity strategist David Kostin wrote in the firm's "Weekly Kickstart" report on Friday.

Increasing earnings estimates tend to drive stock prices higher, and for slower-growing companies, rising estimates as recovery expectations solidify, and even P/E multiple expansion, can lead to significant gains for investors who are willing to go in now and wait. Patiently.

If you are confident that one or more of the massive COVID-19 vaccine-development projects will be successful this year or in 2021, the value-rebound thesis may help you outperform over the next two years. Why two years? Even if there is surprisingly quick success with a vaccine, there are likely to be shortages and other deployment delays. So it seems prudent to look out to 2022 for earnings estimates and price-to-earning valuations.

Among the S&P 500, consensus 2022 earnings estimates are available from FactSet for 483 companies. Five of those are expected to continue losing money that year, making price-to-earnings valuations meaningless.

Among the remaining 478 constituents of the S&P 500, here are the 30 that are the most cheaply priced against calendar 2022 consensus earnings estimates:
