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.

Achieving those goals is made easier with the Zacks Style Scores, a unique set of guidelines that rates stocks based on popular investing methodologies, namely value, growth, and momentum. The Style Scores can help you narrow down which stocks are better for your portfolio and which ones can beat the market over the long-term.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to This Value Stock

Value investors love finding good stocks at good prices, especially before the broader market catches on to a stock's true value. Utilizing ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow, the Value Style Score identifies the most attractive and most discounted stocks.

Jabil (JBL)

Headquartered in St. Petersburg, FL, Jabil, Inc., is one of the largest global suppliers of electronic manufacturing services. The company offers electronics design, production, product management and after-market services to customers catering to aerospace, automotive, computing, consumer, defense, industrial, instrumentation, medical, networking, peripherals, storage and telecommunications industries.

JBL 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 7.2X for the current fiscal year compared to the Electronics - Manufacturing Services industry's P/E of 8X. Additionally, JBL has a PEG Ratio of 0.6 and a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 5X. Value investors should also note JBL's Price/Sales ratio of 0.2X.

Value investors don't just pay attention to a company's valuation ratios; positive earnings play a crucial role, too. Three analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2022. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.18 to $7.47 per share. JBL has an average earnings surprise of 8.5%.

Investors should take the time to consider JBL for their portfolios due to its solid Zacks Ranks, notable earnings and valuation metrics, and impressive Value and VGM Style Scores.
