Looking for a bargain stock to add to your portfolio? If you have nerves of steel and a long-term investment horizon, consider these five companies which are trading at significantly less than their estimated fair value share price.

Banco Santander (SAN)

Despite a Spanish real estate downturn that has persisted since 2008, Spain-based Banco Santander has managed to stay profitable throughout, largely due its geographic diversity, says Morningstar equity analyst Timothy Puls. While loan losses piled up in Spain, the bank’s Latin American operations in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico have been very profitable.

Latin America has generated half of the bank’s profits over the past three years and should remain the largest contributor going forward. Now that it seems the worst of Spain’s economic issues have already surfaced and taken their toll on the bank, Puls expects Banco Santander to be able to once again generate healthy and stable returns for shareholders.
