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.

The following stocks are considered to be notable value stocks in the communication services sector:

  1. Phoenix New Media (NYSE: FENG) - P/E: 1.2
  2. SciPlay (NASDAQ: SCPL) - P/E: 8.14
  3. Jiayin Gr (NASDAQ: JFIN) - P/E: 6.5
  4. Nexstar Media Group (NASDAQ: NXST) - P/E: 8.83
  5. Telephone and Data (NYSE: TDS) - P/E: 9.77

This quarter, Phoenix New Media experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was 0.05 in Q2 and is now 0.0. Phoenix New Media does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
