Are You a Value Investor? This 1 Stock Could Be the Perfect Pick

·2 min read

It doesn't matter your age or experience: taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for all investors.

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

Different than growth or momentum investors, value-focused investors are all about finding good stocks at good prices, and discovering which companies are trading under what their true value is before the broader market catches on. The Value Style Score utilizes ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow to help pick out the most attractive and discounted stocks.

Amcor (AMCR)

Amcor is a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home and personal care, and other products. Through its broad range of packaging products, which include flexible and rigid packaging, specialty cartons and closures, the company helps leading companies in protecting their products and differentiating their brands.

AMCR sits at a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), holds a Value Style Score of B, and has a VGM Score of B. Compared to the Containers - Paper and Packaging industry's P/E of 11.5X, shares of Amcor are trading at a forward P/E of 15.3X. AMCR also has a PEG Ratio of 1.6, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 11.1X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 1.3X.

Value investors don't just pay attention to a company's valuation ratios; positive earnings play a crucial role, too. Three analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2022. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.02 to $0.81 per share. AMCR has an average earnings surprise of 2.4%.

AMCR should be on investors' short lists because of its impressive earnings and valuation fundamentals, a good Zacks Rank, and strong Value and VGM Style Scores.
