5 Value Stocks In The Consumer Defensive 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 consumer defensive sector:

  1. Herbalife Nutrition HLF - P/E: 4.89
  2. Adecoagro AGRO - P/E: 8.07
  3. United Natural Foods UNFI - P/E: 8.45
  4. Tyson Foods TSN - P/E: 8.91
  5. Industrias Bachoco SAB IBA - P/E: 9.02

Herbalife Nutrition has reported Q4 earnings per share at $0.53, which has decreased by 41.76% compared to Q3, which was 0.91. The company's most recent dividend yield sits at 1.71%, which has decreased by 1.82% from 3.53% last quarter.
