A Look Into Industrials Sector Value Stocks

What Defines a Value Stock?

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.

Huttig Building Products's earnings per share for Q3 sits at 0.57, whereas in Q2, they were at 0.54. Huttig Building Products does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

Universal Logistics Hldgs has reported Q3 earnings per share at 0.74, which has decreased by 22.11% compared to Q2, which was 0.95. Its most recent dividend yield is at 1.95%, which has increased by 0.07% from 1.88% in the previous quarter.
