The Meaning Behind Value Stocks

  1. Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) - P/E: 9.67
  2. SPAR Group (NASDAQ: SGRP) - P/E: 8.67
  3. MasTec (NYSE: MTZ) - P/E: 8.0
  4. BG Staffing (NYSE: BGSF) - P/E: 8.08
  5. Heidrick & Struggles Intl (NASDAQ: HSII) - P/E: 9.64

This quarter, Southwest Airlines experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was -0.15 in Q1 and is now -2.67. Most recently, the company reported a dividend yield of 1.25%, which has not changed from last quarter.
