The proven Zacks Rank system focuses on earnings estimates and estimate revisions to find winning stocks. Nevertheless, we know that our readers all have their own perspectives, so we are always looking at the latest trends in value, growth, and momentum to find strong picks.

Of these, value investing is easily one of the most popular ways to find great stocks in any market environment. Value investors rely on traditional forms of analysis on key valuation metrics to find stocks that they believe are undervalued, leaving room for profits.

Luckily, Zacks has developed its own Style Scores system in an effort to find stocks with specific traits. Value investors will be interested in the system's "Value" category. Stocks with both "A" grades in the Value category and high Zacks Ranks are among the strongest value stocks on the market right now.

One company to watch right now is Tempur Sealy (TPX). TPX is currently sporting a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy), as well as a Value grade of A.

TPX's industry has an average PEG of 0.53 right now. Within the past year, TPX's PEG has been as high as 0.88 and as low as 0.37, with a median of 0.61.

Finally, investors should note that TPX has a P/CF ratio of 12.04. This data point considers a firm's operating cash flow and is frequently used to find companies that are undervalued when considering their solid cash outlook. TPX's current P/CF looks attractive when compared to its industry's average P/CF of 21.81. Within the past 12 months, TPX's P/CF has been as high as 15.24 and as low as 10.06, with a median of 12.24.
