A Look Into Healthcare Sector Value Stocks


Understanding Value Stocks

A value stock is traditionally defined in terms of how investors in the marketplace are valuing that company's future growth prospects. Low P/E multiples are good base indicators that the company is undervalued and can most likely be labelled as a value stock.

The following stocks are considered to be notable value stocks in the healthcare sector:

  1. Kiora Pharmaceuticals KPRX - P/E: 0.84
  2. Procaps Gr PROC - P/E: 6.16
  3. InMode INMD - P/E: 9.55
  4. Alkermes ALKS - P/E: 9.56
  5. Syros Pharmaceuticals SYRS - P/E: 7.97

Kiora Pharmaceuticals saw a decrease in earnings per share from -0.79 in Q2 to $-0.89 now. Procaps Gr saw a decrease in earnings per share from 0.27 in Q2 to $0.08 now. Most recently, InMode reported earnings per share at $0.71, whereas in Q3 earnings per share sat at $0.61. Alkermes's earnings per share for Q4 sits at $0.48, whereas in Q3, they were at 0.64. This quarter, Syros Pharmaceuticals experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was $-1.3 in Q2 and is now $-1.43.

The Significance: A value stock may need some time to rebound from its undervalued position. The risk of investing in a value stock is that this emergence may never materialize.
