What are Value Stocks?

A value stock is traditionally defined in terms of how investors in the marketplace are valuing that company’s future growth prospects. Low P/E multiples are good base indicators that the company is undervalued and can most likely be labeled as a value stock.

  4. Seneca Biopharma (NASDAQ: SNCA) - P/E: 9.82

  5. Five Star Senior Living (NASDAQ: FVE) - P/E: 3.65

Onconova Therapeutics has reported Q2 earnings per share at -0.04, which has decreased by 33.33% compared to Q1, which was -0.03. Onconova Therapeutics does not have a dividend yield, which investors should be aware of when considering holding onto such a stock.
