Is Banco Do Brasil (BDORY) Stock Undervalued Right Now?

The proven Zacks Rank system focuses on earnings estimates and estimate revisions to find winning stocks. Nevertheless, we know that our readers all have their own perspectives, so we are always looking at the latest trends in value, growth, and momentum to find strong picks.

Considering these trends, value investing is clearly one of the most preferred ways to find strong stocks in any type of market. Value investors use tried-and-true metrics and fundamental analysis to find companies that they believe are undervalued at their current share price levels.

Zacks has developed the innovative Style Scores system to highlight stocks with specific traits. For example, value investors will be interested in stocks with great grades in the "Value" category. When paired with a high Zacks Rank, "A" grades in the Value category are among the strongest value stocks on the market today.

One company value investors might notice is Banco Do Brasil (BDORY). BDORY is currently sporting a Zacks Rank of #1 (Strong Buy), as well as a Value grade of A. The stock has a Forward P/E ratio of 3.56. This compares to its industry's average Forward P/E of 7.85. Over the past 52 weeks, BDORY's Forward P/E has been as high as 5.16 and as low as 1.86, with a median of 3.43.

We also note that BDORY holds a PEG ratio of 0.36. This popular metric is similar to the widely-known P/E ratio, with the difference being that the PEG ratio also takes into account the company's expected earnings growth rate. BDORY's PEG compares to its industry's average PEG of 0.77. Over the past 52 weeks, BDORY's PEG has been as high as 0.49 and as low as 0.10, with a median of 0.22.

We should also highlight that BDORY has a P/B ratio of 0.80.

Value investors also love the P/S ratio, which is calculated by simply dividing a stock's price with the company's sales. This is a prefered metric because revenue can't really be manipulated, so sales are often a truer performance indicator. BDORY has a P/S ratio of 0.62. This compares to its industry's average P/S of 1.41.

Finally, investors will want to recognize that BDORY has a P/CF ratio of 4.18.
