The Easiest Value Stock Screen Ever

Welcome to Episode #6 of the Value Investor Podcast Every week, Zacks value stock strategist and the Editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio service, Tracey Ryniec, talks about all things happening in the value stock universe, including her top stock picks. This week, Tracey discusses how she used the easiest, most basic, stock screen to find value stocks. The screen has just 2 criteria: 1. A Zacks Rank of #1 (Strong Buy) or #2 (Buy); and 2. A Low Price-to-Sales Ratio Tracey tells you why she likes the price-to-sales ratio versus the price-to-earnings ratio (or P/E) for finding value stocks. After running the screen, and digging down further into the fundamentals, Tracey came up with a couple dozen stocks and narrowed it down from there. 4 Value Stocks Using the Basic Screen 1. Walmart (WMT): P/S ratio of 0.47 2. Macy’s (M): P/S ratio of 0.46 3. Unitedhealth Group (UNH): P/S ratio of 0.77 4. Sysco (SYY): P/S ratio of 0.6 Macy's: Wal-Mart: Sysco Corp: United Heath Group: Follow us on StockTwits: Follow us on Twitter: Like us on Facebook:
