The proven Zacks Rank system focuses on earnings estimates and estimate revisions to find winning stocks. Nevertheless, we know that our readers all have their own perspectives, so we are always looking at the latest trends in value, growth, and momentum to find strong picks.
Of these, perhaps no stock market trend is more popular than value investing, which is a strategy that has proven to be successful in all sorts of market environments. Value investors use tried-and-true metrics and fundamental analysis to find companies that they believe are undervalued at their current share price levels.
Zacks has developed the innovative Style Scores system to highlight stocks with specific traits. For example, value investors will be interested in stocks with great grades in the "Value" category. When paired with a high Zacks Rank, "A" grades in the Value category are among the strongest value stocks on the market today.
One company value investors might notice is Synnex (SNX - Free Report) . SNX is currently holding a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy) and a Value grade of A. The stock is trading with P/E ratio of 8.15 right now. For comparison, its industry sports an average P/E of 20.75. SNX's Forward P/E has been as high as 10.87 and as low as 6.31, with a median of 8.43, all within the past year.
Investors will also notice that SNX has a PEG ratio of 0.68. This figure is similar to the commonly-used P/E ratio, with the PEG ratio also factoring in a company's expected earnings growth rate. SNX's industry has an average PEG of 1.82 right now. Over the last 12 months, SNX's PEG has been as high as 0.74 and as low as 0.67, with a median of 0.73.
These figures are just a handful of the metrics value investors tend to look at, but they help show that Synnex is likely being undervalued right now. Considering this, as well as the strength of its earnings outlook, SNX feels like a great value stock at the moment.
