Investors should feel comfortable knowing that DSDVY likely has seen a stronger improvement to its earnings outlook than ASR has recently. But this is just one piece of the puzzle for value investors.

Value investors also tend to look at a number of traditional, tried-and-true figures to help them find stocks that they believe are undervalued at their current share price levels.
