Value investing is always a very popular strategy, and for good reason. After all, who doesn’t want to find stocks that have low PEs, solid outlooks, and decent dividends?

Fortunately for investors looking for this combination, we have identified a strong candidate which may be an impressive value; Eni S.p.A. E.

Eni in Focus

E may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 10.9, its P/S ratio of 0.7, and its decent dividend yield of 5.6%. These factors suggest that Eni is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that E has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.

But before you think that Eni is just a pure value play, it is important to note that it has been seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate front as well. For current year earnings, the consensus has gone up by 10.8% in the past 30 days, thanks to one upward revision in the past one month compared to none lower.

This estimate strength is actually enough to push E to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

So really, Eni is looking great from a number of angles thanks to its PE below 20, a P/S ratio below one, and a strong Zacks Rank, meaning that this company could be a great choice for value investors at this time.
