Value investing is easily one of the most popular ways to find great stocks in any market environment. After all, who wouldn’t want to find stocks that are either flying under the radar and are compelling buys, or offer up tantalizing discounts when compared to fair value? One way to find these companies is by looking at several key metrics and financial ratios, many of which are crucial in the value stock selection process.
The Price-to-Sales ratio determines the amount investors pay for each dollar of revenues generated by the company. If the Price-to-Sales ratio is 1, it means that investors are paying a dollar for every dollar of revenues generated. So it goes without saying that a stock with a Price-to-Sales ratio below 1 is a good bargain, as investors need to pay less than a dollar for a dollar’s worth. Also, a stock with a low Price-to-Sales ratio is a more suitable investment choice than one with a high ratio.
