What Defines a Value Stock?

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 labeled as a value stock.

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

  1. Hamilton Beach Brands (NYSE: HBB) - P/E: 9.86
  2. China Index Holdings (NASDAQ: CIH) - P/E: 3.19
  3. Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) - P/E: 8.73
  4. VirnetX Hldg (NYSE: VHC) - P/E: 1.29
  5. O2Micro Intl (NASDAQ: OIIM) - P/E: 0.61

Hamilton Beach Brands’s earnings per share for Q2 sits at 0.59, whereas in Q1, they were at -0.1. Its most recent dividend yield is at 2.06%, which has decreased by 1.41% from 3.47% in the previous quarter.

China Index Holdings looks to be undervalued. It possesses an EPS of 0.1, which has not changed since last quarter (Q1). China Index Holdings does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

This quarter, Intel experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was 1.23 in Q2 and is now 1.11. Its most recent dividend yield is at 2.62%, which has increased by 0.38% from 2.24% in the previous quarter.

This quarter, VirnetX Hldg experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was -0.08 in Q1 and is now -0.11. VirnetX Hldg does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

O2Micro Intl saw an increase in earnings per share from 0.03 in Q2 to 0.1 now. O2Micro Intl does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

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.
