Welcome to Episode #254 of the Value Investor Podcast.
Every week, Tracey Ryniec, the editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio, shares some of her top value investing tips and stock picks.
Value investing is often thought of a the “boring” strategy.
Investors only get to buy cheap, slow growth companies.
But value investors shouldn’t settle for slow growth. It’s possible to find value stocks that also have strong growth.
The combination of value and growth is rare, but that’s what makes it a powerful combination.
Value investors should aim high. Don’t settle. Screening for Value and Growth Stocks
How do you find stocks that have both value and growth?
The PEG ratio is a powerful tool for value investors. It combines both a low P/E ratio and growth.A PEG ratio under 1.0 usually indicates a company has value.Additionally, adding the Zacks Ranks of #1 (Strong Buy) and #2 (Buy), the two top Zacks Ranks, to a screen should produce companies where the analysts are raising their earnings estimates.Using just those two fundamentals, the screen produced 95 stocks. 5 Stocks with Low PEG Ratios 1. Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM has rallied nearly 50% this year as crude and natural gas prices have risen but it’s still cheap with a forward P/E of just 12.5 and a PEG ratio of 0.7. Investors also get a juicy dividend yielding 5.6%.2. Tapestry TPR, the parent company of Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman, is expected to grow revenue by 11.6% this fiscal year and another 4.3% next fiscal year as luxury good demand remains strong on the economic reopening. It has a PEG of just 0.9.
