3 Value Stocks To Buy Ahead Of 2018

For many investors, the search for value in the stock market is vital. And the hunt for value is something more investors might start to consider at a time when growth investing, which stems in large part from the rise of tech giants like Amazon (AMZN - Free Report) and Apple (AAPL - Free Report), is extremely prevalent.

Value investing can get pushed to the wayside as investors favor companies with outsized growth potential. But sometimes, growth metrics can come at the expense of reasonable value.

Investors that want to put their money in stocks that offer great bang for every investment dollar should look for companies with strong value fundamentals. On top of that, investors should also consider finding stocks that sport high Zacks Ranks.

With that said, let’s take a look at three stocks with great Zacks Ranks and solid value metrics that investors might find enticing as we head towards 2018.

E.ON SE (EONGY - Free Report)

This international energy giant is currently a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) and sports an “A” grade for Value in our Style Scores system, which helps it earn an overall “A” VGM score. E.ON is currently trading at 15.43x earnings, which marks a substantial discount compared to the “Utility – Electric Power” industry’s average.
