Overview Of Value Stocks In The Technology Sector

What Defines a Value Stock?

A value stock traditionally has a lower price when compared to stock prices of companies in the same industry. This indicates that the company may be undervalued, as investors are not expressing as much interest in such companies. The most commonly used way to check for value is with the price-to-earnings multiple, or P/E. A low P/E multiple is a good indication that the stock is undervalued.

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

  1. Bel Fuse BELFA - P/E: 8.59
  2. MIND C.T.I. MNDO - P/E: 7.65
  3. Amkor Tech AMKR - P/E: 8.31
  4. Amtech Systems ASYS - P/E: 9.96
  5. ClearOne CLRO - P/E: 1.75

Bel Fuse saw a decrease in earnings per share from 1.4 in Q3 to $1.27 now. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 0.66%, which has decreased by 0.16% from last quarter's yield of 0.82%.

MIND C.T.I. looks to be undervalued. It possesses an EPS of $0.06, which has not changed since last quarter (Q3). Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 10.32%, which has increased by 1.62% from last quarter's yield of 8.7%.

Most recently, Amkor Tech reported earnings per share at $0.67, whereas in Q3 earnings per share sat at $1.24. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 1.02%, which has decreased by 0.13% from last quarter's yield of 1.15%.

This quarter, Amtech Systems experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was $0.3 in Q4 and is now $-0.2. ClearOne has reported Q4 earnings per share at $-0.09, which has decreased by 350.0% compared to Q3, which was -0.02. Its most recent dividend yield is at 3.48%, which has decreased by 0.45% from 3.93% in the previous 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.
