5 Value Stocks To Watch In The Industrials Sector

What are 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 industrials sector:

  1. Tutor Perini TPC - P/E: 9.02
  2. Nordic American Tankers NAT - P/E: 5.52
  3. L.B. Foster FSTR - P/E: 7.48
  4. BlueLinx Hldgs BXC - P/E: 5.04
  5. Acacia Research ACTG - P/E: 4.08

Tutor Perini's earnings per share for Q4 sits at 0.69, whereas in Q3, they were at 0.72. Tutor Perini does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.

This quarter, Nordic American Tankers experienced a decrease in earnings per share, which was -0.07 in Q3 and is now -0.19. The company's most recent dividend yield sits at 2.5%, which has decreased by 2.53% from 5.03% last quarter.
