What is 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.

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

  1. Orion Gr Hldgs (NYSE: ORN) - P/E: 9.61
  2. FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ: FCEL) - P/E: 2.4
  3. Willis Lease Finance (NASDAQ: WLFC) - P/E: 3.29
  4. Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (NASDAQ: GLDD) - P/E: 10.0
  5. Northwest Pipe (NASDAQ: NWPX) - P/E: 9.01

Orion Gr Hldgs saw a decrease in earnings per share from 0.08 in Q1 to 0.04 now. Orion Gr Hldgs does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

FuelCell Energy looks to be undervalued. It possesses an EPS of -0.07, which has not changed since last quarter (Q2). FuelCell Energy does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

This quarter, Willis Lease Finance experienced an increase in earnings per share, which was 0.56 in Q1 and is now 0.74. Willis Lease Finance does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
