Why Stora Enso (SEOAY) Could Be a Top Value Stock Pick

Zacks

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; Stora Enso Oyj SEOAY.

Stora Enso in Focus

SEOAY may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 15.71, its P/S ratio of 0.96, and its decent dividend yield of 2.42%. These factors suggest that Stora Enso is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that SEOAY has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.


Stora Enso Oyj PE Ratio (TTM)

But before you think that Stora Enso 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 3.7% 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 SEOAY to a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (stocks here.
