5 Value Stocks In The Real Estate Sector

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.

  1. Forestar Group FOR - P/E: 8.82

  3. Comstock Holding Co CHCI - P/E: 2.43
  4. Dynex Cap DX - P/E: 3.85
  5. Chimera Investment CIM - P/E: 4.62
