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; Repsol, S.A. REPYY .

REPYY may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 10.20, its P/S ratio of 0.69, and its decent dividend yield of 3.74%. These factors suggest that Repsol is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that REPYY has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.
