5 Value Stocks To Watch In The Healthcare Sector


What is 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.

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

  1. Baudax Bio BXRX - P/E: 0.1
  2. IsoPlexis ISO - P/E: 0.18
  3. eFFECTOR Therapeutics EFTR - P/E: 0.96
  4. QuidelOrtho QDEL - P/E: 3.26
  5. Graphite Bio GRPH - P/E: 0.61

This quarter, Baudax Bio experienced an increase in earnings per share, which was $-3.75 in Q1 and is now $-0.69. IsoPlexis has reported Q2 earnings per share at $-0.56, which has increased by 24.32% compared to Q1, which was -0.74. eFFECTOR Therapeutics's earnings per share for Q2 sits at $-0.17, whereas in Q1, they were at 0.07.
