Investors looking for stocks in the Toys - Games - Hobbies sector might want to consider either Hasbro (HAS) or Take-Two Interactive (TTWO). But which of these two stocks is more attractive to value investors? We'll need to take a closer look to find out.

The best way to find great value stocks is to pair a strong Zacks Rank with an impressive grade in the Value category of our Style Scores system. The Zacks Rank is a proven strategy that targets companies with positive earnings estimate revision trends, while our Style Scores work to grade companies based on specific traits.

Right now, Hasbro is sporting a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy), while Take-Two Interactive has a Zacks Rank of #4 (Sell). The Zacks Rank favors stocks that have recently seen positive revisions to their earnings estimates, so investors should rest assured that HAS has an improving earnings outlook. But this is just one piece of the puzzle for value investors.

Value investors are also interested in a number of tried-and-true valuation metrics that help show when a company is undervalued at its current share price levels.

The Style Score Value grade factors in a variety of key fundamental metrics, including the popular P/E ratio, P/S ratio, earnings yield, cash flow per share, and a number of other key stats that are commonly used by value investors.

HAS currently has a forward P/E ratio of 21.12, while TTWO has a forward P/E of 40.09. We also note that HAS has a PEG ratio of 1.25. This popular figure is similar to the widely-used P/E ratio, but the PEG ratio also considers a company's expected EPS growth rate. TTWO currently has a PEG ratio of 4.01.

Another notable valuation metric for HAS is its P/B ratio of 4.43. Investors use the P/B ratio to look at a stock's market value versus its book value, which is defined as total assets minus total liabilities. By comparison, TTWO has a P/B of 6.19.

Based on these metrics and many more, HAS holds a Value grade of B, while TTWO has a Value grade of C.

HAS stands above TTWO thanks to its solid earnings outlook, and based on these valuation figures, we also feel that HAS is the superior value option right now.
