What are value stocks?
A value stock traditionally has a lower price than stocks of companies in the same industry. This indicates that the company may be undervalued because investors are not showing as much interest in these companies. The most common way to check value is through the price/earnings multiple, or P/E. A low P/E multiple is a good indication that the stock is undervalued.
