Why This 1 Value Stock Could Be a Great Addition to Your Portfolio

·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.

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

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.

Berry Global (BERY)

Berry Global Group, Inc. manufactures and distributes nonwoven specialty materials, engineered materials and consumer packaging products in the market. The company services personal care, healthcare as well as beverage and food markets in South America, North America, Asia and Europe.

BERY boasts a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of B, and holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) rating. Shares of Berry Global are trading at a forward earnings multiple of 7.8X, as well as a PEG Ratio of 0.8, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 4.2X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 0.5X.

Many value investors pay close attention to a company's earnings as well. For BERY, eight analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.11 to $7.38 per share for 2022. Per share BERY boasts an average earnings surprise of 6.5%.
