A Look Into Basic Materials 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.

  3. Flexible Solutions Intl FSI - P/E: 9.91
  4. Nutrien NTR - P/E: 5.3
  5. IT Tech Packaging ITP - P/E: 5.5
