What is 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 labelled as a value stock.

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

  1. Qurate Retail (NASDAQ:QRTEA) - P/E: 7.6
  2. Hovnanian Enterprises (NYSE:HOV) - P/E: 5.93
  3. Cannae Holdings (NYSE:CNNE) - P/E: 2.65
  4. Lakeland Industries (NASDAQ:LAKE) - P/E: 7.68
  5. Big 5 Sporting Goods (NASDAQ:BGFV) - P/E: 7.6

This quarter, Qurate Retail experienced an increase in earnings per share, which was 0.54 in Q2 and is now 0.57. Qurate Retail does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
