The proven Zacks Rank system focuses on earnings estimates and estimate revisions to find winning stocks. Nevertheless, we know that our readers all have their own perspectives, so we are always looking at the latest trends in value, growth, and momentum to find strong picks.

Of these, perhaps no stock market trend is more popular than value investing, which is a strategy that has proven to be successful in all sorts of market environments. Value investors use a variety of methods, including tried-and-true valuation metrics, to find these stocks.

Luckily, Zacks has developed its own Style Scores system in an effort to find stocks with specific traits. Value investors will be interested in the system's "Value" category. Stocks with both "A" grades in the Value category and high Zacks Ranks are among the strongest value stocks on the market right now.

One company value investors might notice is World Fuel Services (INT). INT is currently holding a Zacks Rank of #2 (Buy) and a Value grade of A. The stock holds a P/E ratio of 11.76, while its industry has an average P/E of 26.59. INT's Forward P/E has been as high as 17.47 and as low as 7.54, with a median of 13.92, all within the past year.

We also note that INT holds a PEG ratio of 2.35. This popular figure is similar to the widely-used P/E ratio, but the PEG ratio also considers a company's expected EPS growth rate. INT's PEG compares to its industry's average PEG of 2.41. Within the past year, INT's PEG has been as high as 3.49 and as low as 1.51, with a median of 2.78.

These are just a handful of the figures considered in World Fuel Services's great Value grade. Still, they help show that the stock is likely being undervalued at the moment. Add this to the strength of its earnings outlook, and we can clearly see that INT is an impressive value stock right now.
