These are the most attractive value stocks in the industry

A value stock has a lower price when compared to the stock prices of companies in the same industry. This indicates that the company may be undervalued, as investors are not expressing interest in such companies. The price-to earnings multiple, or P E, is the most commonly used way to check for value. A low P E multiple is a good indication that the stock is undervalued.

The following stocks are considered to be notable value stocks in the financial services sector:

Salisbury Bancorp reported Q 2 earnings per share at $0.66, an increase of 6.45% compared to Q 1, which was 0.62. The dividend yield of the company was 2.76% last quarter, which has increased by 0.4% from the previous quarter's yield of 2.36%.

Jefferies Financial Group saw a decrease in earnings per share this quarter, which was $1.23 in Q 1 and is now $0.45. The dividend yield was 4.31% last quarter, which has increased by 0.6% from the previous quarter's yield of 3.71%.

Guild Holdings reported Q 2 earnings per share at $0.23, which has decreased by 56.6% compared to Q 1, which was 0.53. In Q1 Village Bank Trust Finl saw an increase in earnings per share, which was $1.24 and is now $1.48. Its most recent dividend yield is at 1.16%, which has increased by 0.03% from 1.13% in the previous quarter.

The earnings per share for Q 2 is $0.67, while the earnings per share for the Summit State Bank was at 0.59 in Q 1. The dividend yield for the company was 3.08%, which has gone up by 0.17% from 2.91% last quarter.

A value stock may need some time to rebound from its undervalued position. The risk of investing in a value stock is that it may never materialize.
