A Look Into Industrials Sector Value Stocks

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.

Below is a list of notable value stocks in the industrials sector:

  1. Smith & Wesson Brands SWBI - P/E: 3.3
  2. Costamare CMRE - P/E: 2.73
  3. Insteel Indus IIIN - P/E: 4.3
  4. Schneider National SNDR - P/E: 8.45
  5. Mega Matrix MTMT - P/E: 0.46

Smith & Wesson Brands saw an increase in earnings per share from 0.69 in Q3 to $0.82 now. Its most recent dividend yield is at 3.05%, which has increased by 1.28% from 1.77% in the previous quarter.
