What Defines a Value Stock?

A value stock traditionally has a lower price when compared to stock prices of companies in the same industry. This indicates that the company may be undervalued, as investors are not expressing as much interest in such companies. The most commonly used way to check for value is with the price-to-earnings multiple, or P/E. A low P/E multiple is a good indication that the stock is undervalued.

  3. Triple-S Management (NYSE:GTS) - P/E: 9.26

  4. Greenlane Holdings (NASDAQ:GNLN) - P/E: 6.15

  5. Jaguar Health (NASDAQ:JAGX) - P/E: 0.21

Most recently, RAPT Therapeutics reported earnings per share at -0.6, whereas in Q2 earnings per share sat at -0.51. RAPT Therapeutics does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
