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; Sprague Resources LPSRLP .
Sprague Resources in Focus
SRLP may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 8.23, its P/S ratio of 0.06, and its decent dividend yield of 8.3%. These factors suggest that Sprague Resources is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that SRLP has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.
But before you think that Sprague Resources 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. Though we have seen no estimate revision in any direction, the consensus has gone up by 3.2% in the past 30 days, for current year earnings.
This estimate strength is actually enough to push SRLP to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. So really, Sprague Resources 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.
