5 Value Stocks In The Consumer Cyclical 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.

The following stocks are considered to be notable value stocks in the consumer cyclical sector:

  1. International Paper IP - P/E: 7.35
  2. Destination XL Group DXLG - P/E: 4.22
  3. Murphy USA MUSA - P/E: 8.7
  4. FGI Industries FGI - P/E: 4.26
  5. Ethan Allen Interiors ETD - P/E: 6.09

International Paper's earnings per share for Q4 sits at $0.87, whereas in Q3, they were at 1.01. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 5.0%, which has decreased by 0.86% from last quarter's yield of 5.86%.
