5 Value Stocks In The Healthcare Sector

What are 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. Global Cord Blood CO - P/E: 4.29
  2. ITeos Therapeutics ITOS - P/E: 3.27
  3. Regenxbio RGNX - P/E: 8.98
  4. Walgreens Boots Alliance WBA - P/E: 6.37
