12:54 EDTGM, HPQ, WNR, HFC, MPC, HIG, LNC, GNW, AFL, MET, DAL, STXRanking The Barron's 500 by P/E could show what stocks are inexpensive
Companies in the Barron's 500 are ranked by Credit Suisse's HOLT on the basis of changes in sales and return on cash flow. Seeking to gauge the prospects for their stocks, Barron's asked FactSet to re-rank the companies by their price/earnings ratios, based on profit estimates for the current fiscal year. A low P/E is often a simple way to tell that a company is out of favor with investors. Thus, it is a metric beloved by value investors, who often profit by heading in the opposite direction from the crowd. Out-of-favor stocks, including General Motors (GM) and Delta Air Lines (DAL), with their mid-single-digit P/Es, just might beckon such investors, Barron's contends. The periodicalsí list of the 30 stocks with the lowest P/Es also has a fair concentration of insurance names, including No. 9-ranked MetLife (MET), Aflac (AFL), Genworth Financial (GNW), Lincoln National (LNC) and Hartford Financial Services (HIG). Oil refiners also are well represented, with Marathon Petroleum (MPC), HollyFrontier (HFC), and Western Refining (WNR) sporting cheap stocks. Investors fear profits will decline if oil prices fall. In tech, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) isn't the cheapest tech stock on our list; that dubious distinction goes to Seagate Technology (STX). Reference Link
