Are You a Value Investor? This 1 Stock Could Be the Perfect Pick

It doesn't matter your age or experience: taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for all investors.

Many investors also have a go-to methodology that helps guide their buy and sell decisions. One way to find winning stocks based on your preferred way of investing is to use the Zacks Style Scores, which are indicators that rate stocks based on three widely-followed investing types: value, growth, and momentum.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to This Value Stock

Different than growth or momentum investors, value-focused investors are all about finding good stocks at good prices, and discovering which companies are trading under what their true value is before the broader market catches on. The Value Style Score utilizes ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow to help pick out the most attractive and discounted stocks.

Charter Communications (CHTR)

Charter Communications is the second largest cable operator in the United States and a leading broadband communications company providing video, Internet and voice services. The company served approximately 32.1 million residential and small and medium business customers as of Dec 31, 2021.

CHTR sits at a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), holds a Value Style Score of A, and has a VGM Score of A. Compared to the Cable Television industry's P/E of 12.8X, shares of Charter Communications are trading at a forward P/E of 9.5X. CHTR also has a PEG Ratio of 0.4, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 3.8X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 0.9X.

Many value investors pay close attention to a company's earnings as well. For CHTR, 12 analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $1.89 to $32.36 per share for 2022. Per share CHTR boasts an average earnings surprise of 19.4%.
