5 Value Stocks To Watch In The Energy Sector

Understanding 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.

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

  1. Gulfport Energy GPOR - P/E: 3.7
  2. Pioneer Natural Resources PXD - P/E: 6.1
  3. Northern Oil & Gas NOG - P/E: 3.14
  4. TORM TRMD - P/E: 5.18
  5. Phillips 66 PSX - P/E: 4.07

Most recently, Gulfport Energy reported earnings per share at $3.13, whereas in Q3 earnings per share sat at $3.69. Pioneer Natural Resources saw a decrease in earnings per share from 7.48 in Q3 to $5.91 now. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 10.84%, which has increased by 2.24% from last quarter's yield of 8.6%.

Most recently, Northern Oil & Gas reported earnings per share at $1.43, whereas in Q3 earnings per share sat at $1.8. Its most recent dividend yield is at 4.26%, which has increased by 0.66% from 3.6% in the previous quarter.

TORM's earnings per share for Q4 sits at $2.73, whereas in Q3, they were at 2.63. Phillips 66's earnings per share for Q4 sits at $4.0, whereas in Q3, they were at 6.46. The company's most recent dividend yield sits at 4.11%, which has decreased by 0.05% from 4.16% last quarter.

The Significance: A value stock may need some time to rebound from its undervalued position. The risk of investing in a value stock is that this emergence may never materialize.
