Are You Brave Enough to Buy These Value Stocks?

Welcome to Episode #51 of the Value Investor Podcast

Every week, Tracey Ryniec, the editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio service, shares some of her top value investing tips and stock picks.

Stocks continue to hit new all-time highs, but there are still some stocks that haven’t joined in on the party.

Certain sectors, like retailers, remain out of favor. And other sectors, like emerging market stocks, are simply just being ignored.

But value investors like to dig deep and find opportunities where no one else is looking.

These 3 stocks have been ignored by Wall Street. But they’re cheap and are growing earnings.

Maybe it’s time to dig deeper into these ignored value stocks.

3 Value Stocks No One is Watching

1. Cemex (NYSE: CX Free Report), the Mexican cement giant, has been completely ignored by investors for years. The shares have been treading water in a narrow range most of that time. But they’re cheap and have a PEG of 0.8. What if it’s time to be in the emerging market stocks?

2. Big Lots (NYSE: BIG Free Report) isn’t even on the tongue of most retail watchers. Over the last 5 years, the stock has returned just 18% for shareholders. But it trades with a forward P/E of just 11.4. Earnings are expected to rise 15% this year. Are you willing to take a chance in the retail sector?

3. Raymond James Financial (NYSE: RJF Free Report) bounced around in a narrow trading range from 2014 to 2016. Things have been looking up but investors are still mostly ignoring it. In the first two quarters of the year it had record quarterly net revenues. With stocks at new highs, it looks to continue that trend. Shares are trading at just 16x.

None of these stocks are trading like Netflix or McDonald’s. Yet, they present a buying opportunity.

What else should you know about stocks the market is ignoring?
