Natural Resource (NRP): The Perfect Mix of Value and Rising Earnings Estimates?

Value investing is always a very popular strategy, and for good reason. After all, who doesn't want to find stocks that have low PEs, solid outlooks, and decent dividends?

Fortunately for investors looking for this combination, we have identified a strong candidate which may be an impressive value; Natural Resource Partners L.P.NRP .

Natural Resource in Focus

NRP may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 6.2, its P/S ratio of 0.9, and its decent dividend yield of 5.9%. These factors suggest that Natural Resource is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that NRP has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.

But before you think that Natural Resource 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 9.8% in the past 30 days, thanks to one upward revision in the past month compared to none lower.

This estimate strength is actually enough to push NRP to a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here .

Best Electric Car Stock? You'll Never Guess It.

Zacks Research has released a report that may shock many investors. One stock stands out as the best way to invest in the surge to electric cars. And it's not the one you may think!

Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium battery power is set to shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge. With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, revenues that were already at $31 billion in 2016 are expected to blast to over $67 billion by the end of 2022.
