Taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for new and old investors alike.
While you may have an investing style you rely on, finding great stocks is made easier with the Zacks Style Scores. These are complementary indicators that rate stocks based on value, growth, and/or momentum characteristics.
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.

TTE is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock, with a Value Style Score of A and VGM Score of A.
