Taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for new and old investors alike.

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.

Omnicom (OMC)

New York based Omnicom is one of the largest advertising, marketing and corporate communications companies in the world. The company’s agencies operate in all the major markets across the globe and provide an extensive range of services. Areas of operation include North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, and other Asian countries.

OMC is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock, with a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of A. Shares are currently trading at a forward P/E of 12.3X for the current fiscal year compared to the Advertising and Marketing industry's P/E of 13.2X. Additionally, OMC has a PEG Ratio of 2.4 and a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 11.1X. Value investors should also note OMC's Price/Sales ratio of 1.2X.

Many value investors pay close attention to a company's earnings as well. For OMC, three analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.30 to $6.73 per share for 2022. Per share OMC boasts an average earnings surprise of 15.1%.

OMC should be on investors' short lists because of its impressive earnings and valuation fundamentals, a good Zacks Rank, and strong Value and VGM Style Scores.
