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 labelled as a value stock.

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

  1. Spark Energy (NASDAQ:SPKE) - P/E: 7.22
  2. Cia Paranaense De Energia (NYSE:ELP) - P/E: 4.57
  3. Atlantic Power (NYSE:AT) - P/E: 4.74
  4. Pampa Energia (NYSE:PAM) - P/E: 0.2
  5. China Recycling Energy (NASDAQ:CREG) - P/E: 4.01

Spark Energy has reported Q4 earnings per share at 0.13, which has decreased by 75.0% compared to Q3, which was 0.52. The company's most recent dividend yield sits at 6.57%, which has decreased by 1.89% from 8.46% last quarter.

Cia Paranaense De Energia's earnings per share for Q4 sits at 0.72, whereas in Q3, they were at 0.46. Its most recent dividend yield is at 8.62%, which has increased by 2.36% from 6.26% in the previous quarter.

Most recently, Pampa Energia reported earnings per share at 0.41, whereas in Q3 earnings per share sat at 0.05. Pampa Energia does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

China Recycling Energy saw a decrease in earnings per share from 0.43 in Q2 to -0.25 now. China Recycling Energy does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
