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.

  3. First Western Financial (NASDAQ:MYFW) - P/E: 6.43
  4. Consumer Pf Servs (NASDAQ:CPSS) - P/E: 4.7
  5. Enstar Gr (NASDAQ:ESGR) - P/E: 4.67

Elevate Credit saw a decrease in earnings per share from 0.42 in Q3 to 0.23 now. Elevate Credit does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
