Fortunately for investors looking for this combination, we have identified a strong candidate which may be an impressive value; Park-Ohio Holdings Corp.PKOH .

Park-Ohio in Focus

PKOH may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 10.6, its P/S ratio of 0.3, and its decent dividend yield of 1.2%. These factors suggest that Park-Ohio is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that PKOH has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.
