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 labeled as a value stock.

  2. Big Lots (NYSE: BIG) - P/E: 2.72
  3. SpartanNash (NASDAQ: SPTN) - P/E: 9.55
  4. Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ: SFM) - P/E: 9.57
  5. BellRing Brands (NYSE: BRBR) - P/E: 5.77

Mannatech’s earnings per share for Q3 sits at 0.76, whereas in Q2, they were at 0.47. The company’s most recent dividend yield sits at 3.63%, which has increased by 0.24% from 3.39% last quarter.
