MITSY

Trades from $3

Value investing is always a very popular strategy, and for good reason. After all, who doesn’t want to find stocks that have low PEs, solid outlooks, and decent dividends?

Fortunately for investors looking for this combination, we have identified a strong candidate which may be an impressive value; Mitsui & Co. Ltd. (MITSY - Free Report) .

Mitsui in Focus

MITSY may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 11.49, its P/S ratio of 0.64, and its decent dividend yield of 2%. These factors suggest that Mitsuiis a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that MITSY has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings. 

MITSUI PE Ratio (TTM)

But before you think that Mitsuiis just a pure value play, it is important to note that it has been seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate front as well. For current year earnings, the consensus has gone up by 24.1% in the past 60 days, thanks to 1 upward revision in the past two months compared to none lower.

This estimate strength is actually enough to push MITSY to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. So really, Mitsuiis looking great from a number of angles thanks to its PE below 20, a P/S ratio below one, and a strong Zacks Rank, meaning that this company could be a great choice for value investors at this time.
