For new and old investors, taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals.

While you may have an investing style you rely on, finding great stocks is made easier with the Zacks Style Scores. These are complementary indicators that rate stocks based on value, growth, and/or momentum characteristics.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to This Value Stock

Value investors love finding good stocks at good prices, especially before the broader market catches on to a stock's true value. Utilizing ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow, the Value Style Score identifies the most attractive and most discounted stocks.

Landstar System (LSTR)

Many value investors pay close attention to a company's earnings as well. For LSTR, six analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.72 to $11.80 per share for 2022.
