Here's Why Oshkosh (OSK) is a Strong Value Stock

Taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for new and old investors alike.

Many investors also have a go-to methodology that helps guide their buy and sell decisions. One way to find winning stocks based on your preferred way of investing is to use the Zacks Style Scores, which are indicators that rate stocks based on three widely-followed investing types: value, growth, and momentum.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to This Value Stock

Different than growth or momentum investors, value-focused investors are all about finding good stocks at good prices, and discovering which companies are trading under what their true value is before the broader market catches on. The Value Style Score utilizes ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow to help pick out the most attractive and discounted stocks.


Oshkosh (OSK)

Established in 1917, WI-based Oshkosh Corporation is a producer and seller of a varied range of vehicle bodies and specialty vehicles. It is also engaged in equipment financing and leasing solutions for its customers, primarily through third-party funding arrangements. Oshkosh has manufacturing operations in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Mexico and the United Kingdom, apart from the seven states of the United States.

OSK is a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock, with a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of A. Shares are currently trading at a forward P/E of 10.6X for the current fiscal year compared to the Automotive - Original Equipment industry's P/E of 12.3X. Additionally, OSK has a PEG Ratio of 1.4 and a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 8.7X. Value investors should also note OSK's Price/Sales ratio of 0.7X.

Value investors don't just pay attention to a company's valuation ratios; positive earnings play a crucial role, too. Five analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2024. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.12 to $10.27 per share. OSK has an average earnings surprise of 46.8%.

OSK should be on investors' short lists because of its impressive earnings and valuation fundamentals, a good Zacks Rank, and strong Value and VGM Style Scores.
