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.
O-I Glass (OI)
Perrysburg, OH-based O-I Glass, Inc. is the largest manufacturer of glass containers in the world. It competes in the glass container segment of the rigid packaging market. The company has 69 glass manufacturing plants spread over 19 countries.
OI boasts a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of A, and holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) rating. Shares of O-I Glass are trading at a forward earnings multiple of 5.7X, as well as a PEG Ratio of 0.4, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 3.4X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 0.4X.
A company's earnings performance is important for value investors as well. For fiscal 2023, three analysts revised their earnings estimate higher in the last 60 days for OI, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.02 to $3.21 per share. OI also holds an average earnings surprise of 20.5%.
With strong valuation and earnings metrics, a good Zacks Rank, and top-tier Value and VGM Style Scores, investors should strongly think about adding OI to their portfolios.
