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

·2-min read

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

Achieving those goals is made easier with the Zacks Style Scores, a unique set of guidelines that rates stocks based on popular investing methodologies, namely value, growth, and momentum. The Style Scores can help you narrow down which stocks are better for your portfolio and which ones can beat the market over the long-term.

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.

Bayer Aktiengesellschaft (BAYRY)

Headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany, Bayer AG is a life science company with core competencies in the areas of health care and agriculture.

BAYRY boasts a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of B, and holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) rating. Shares of Bayer Aktiengesellschaft are trading at a forward earnings multiple of 7.8X, as well as a PEG Ratio of 1.7, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 5.4X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 1.1X.

Value investors don't just pay attention to a company's valuation ratios; positive earnings play a crucial role, too. Two analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2022. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.00 to $1.97 per share. BAYRY has an average earnings surprise of 17.7%.

BAYRY 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.
