Investing in Value Stocks

A stock that tends to trade at a lower price relative to it’s fundamentals (i.e. dividends, earnings, sales, etc.) and thus considered undervalued by a value investor. Common characteristics of such stocks include a high dividend yield, low price-to-book ratio and/or low price-to-earnings ratio. A value investor believes that the market isn’t always efficient and that it’s possible to find companies trading for less than they are worth. An easy way to attempt to find value stocks is to use the “Dogs of the Dow” investing strategy — buying of the 10 highest dividend-yielding stocks on the Dow Jones at the beginning of each year and adjusting it every year thereafter.

A weak recovery in the U.S. and Europe has helped reduce the price to earnings ratios on a number of large cap stocks in the big emerging markets. Value investors take notice. Here are the top 10 recommendations by stock forecasters at ValuEngine.com.

Cooperman’s Omega Advisors amassed a new position in Laredo Petroleum, and Viking Global Investors, led by Andreas Halvorsen, increased its stake in Cheniere Energy by several million shares.
