Devon Energy in Focus

DVN may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 11.9, its P/S ratio of 0.8, and its decent dividend yield of 3.2%. These factors suggest that Devon Energy is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that DVN has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.

But before you think that Devon Energy is just a pure value play, it is important to note that it has been seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate front as well. For current year earnings, the consensus has gone up by 16.2% in the past 60 days, thanks to 10 upward revisions in the past two months compared to no downward revisions.

This estimate strength is actually enough to push DVN to a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. So really, Devon Energy is looking great from a number of angles thanks to its PE below 20, a P/S ratio below one, and a strong Zacks Rank, meaning that this company could be a great choice for value investors at this time.
