Value stocks have a low price/earnings ratio and a high dividend yield. They are usually traded at a discount to the overall stock market. The sharp market correction only exacerbated the situation.
Value investing is a stock investing strategy that has been around for many years and is based on the idea that you should buy a stock when you are trading it at or below its intrinsic value.
Value investors believe in buying stocks of companies with good fundamentals, such as a high dividend yield, low leverage, and increased earnings growth.
These stocks may trade at a lower price than other stocks because they are not as popular or well-known as other companies.

best buy (NYSE:BBYlisten)) is an American multinational consumer electronics retailer headquartered in Richfield, Minnesota. It operates in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
In 1966, Richard M. Schulze and his partner John W. Schulze opened Sound of Music stores in St. Paul and Minneapolis to sell records, cassettes, and compact discs to a new, emerging market of music-interested teenagers rock and other genres. In 1983, the company expanded nationwide with a new store format called Best Buy Co., Inc., later changed to “Best Buy” in 1985.
Best Buy is the number one name in consumer electronics for many people. And it’s been around for 50 years now. During this time, Best Buy established itself as one of America’s most recognizable brands and grew into a multi-billion dollar company.
However, its recent financial statements leave much to be desired. Due to weak results, the stock lost considerable market value. Therefore, the time to buy is now.

Televisa Group (NYSE:TV) is the largest media company in Latin America. It is one of the main content producers in Spanish and Portuguese, with more than 200 channels in Mexico and Brazil.
Since its inception, Grupo Televisa SAB has been at the forefront of innovation in digital media. He used his vast resources to develop new technologies that are now commonplace, such as high definition television, 3D television and virtual reality.
In recent years, Grupo Televisa SAB has also started focusing on AI technologies that can enable their content creators to create better content for their viewers.
In the United States, analysts are still concerned about cable subscribers. All the talk surrounds streaming these days and how it will revolutionize content creation. However, it’s also important to consider that many places are still seeing cable grow. And Mexico is one of those areas.
For example, Grupo Televisa’s net sales increased 6.3% from 2020 to 2021. This type of revenue increase is rare in the US market, making the company an excellent choice among value stocks.

United Rentals (NYSE:URI) is a leading provider of rental equipment. They offer over 3300 classes of equipment and tools to customers in over 1000 locations across North America.
The infrastructure sector is one of the most important sectors of the US economy, and it has been on the rise for some time now. For example, United Rentals is poised to win big with President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion partisan infrastructure plan. With construction jobs on the rise, this new bill is an absolute boon to United and businesses like them.
We see these strong industrial tailwinds in the company’s results. In the first quarter, revenues are up more than 30% and are breaking records. Net profit for the quarter increased 80.8% year-over-year to a record $367 million in the first quarter, while net profit margin increased 460 basis points to 14 .5%. The company broke first-quarter net profit records in both cases. Adjusted EBITDA grew 30.5% annually and hit a record $1.139 billion this quarter.
The company also raised its outlook for the positive results. “I want to frame my comments around one word: demand,” said President and CEO Matt Flannery, “2022 is shaping up to be a year of record demand for our services and that’s driving strong first quarter results we released, and this underpins our decision to update our guidance.”
