5 Value Stocks In The Utilities Sector

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.

Benzinga Insights has compiled a list of value stocks in the utilities sector that may be worth watching:

  3. Pampa Energia PAM - P/E: 3.71
  4. Hawaiian Electric Indus HE - P/E: 6.22
  5. Brookfield Renewable BEPC - P/E: 6.73

Most recently, Enel Chile reported earnings per share at $0.13, whereas in Q4 earnings per share sat at $0.86. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 64.82%, which has decreased by 1.55% from last quarter's yield of 66.37%.

It possesses an EPS of $0.5, which has not changed since last quarter (Q1). The company's most recent dividend yield sits at 3.75%, which has increased by 0.01% from 3.74% last quarter.

Brookfield Renewable saw a decrease in earnings per share from -0.09 in Q1 to $-0.1 now. Its most recent dividend yield is at 4.77%, which has increased by 0.58% from 4.19% in the previous quarter.
