    Is Vector Group (VGR) a Great Value Stock Right Now?

    One company to watch right now is Vector Group (VGR). VGR is currently holding a Zacks Rank of #1 (Strong Buy) and a Value grade of A.

    Value investors also use the P/S ratio. The P/S ratio is is calculated as price divided by sales. Some people prefer this metric because sales are harder to manipulate on an income statement. This means it could be a truer performance indicator. VGR has a P/S ratio of 0.87. This compares to its industry's average P/S of 1.67.

    Finally, investors will want to recognize that VGR has a P/CF ratio of 16.12. This metric focuses on a firm's operating cash flow and is often used to find stocks that are undervalued based on the strength of their cash outlook. This company's current P/CF looks solid when compared to its industry's average P/CF of 18.44. VGR's P/CF has been as high as 24.98 and as low as 12.82, with a median of 20.67, all within the past year.

    These are only a few of the key metrics included in Vector Group's strong Value grade, but they help show that the stock is likely undervalued right now. When factoring in the strength of its earnings outlook, VGR looks like an impressive value stock at the moment.

    3 Reasons Why Vector (VGR) Is a Great Growth Stock
    [​IMG]
    Zacks Equity Research
    ,
    Zacks•15 November 2019


    [​IMG]
    Growth stocks are attractive to many investors, as above-average financial growth helps these stocks easily grab the market's attention and produce exceptional returns. But finding a great growth stock is not easy at all.

    In addition to volatility, these stocks carry above-average risk by their very nature. Also, one could end up losing from a stock whose growth story is actually over or nearing its end.

    However, it's pretty easy to find cutting-edge growth stocks with the help of the Zacks Growth Style Score (part of the Zacks Style Scores system), which looks beyond the traditional growth attributes to analyze a company's real growth prospects.

    Vector Group (VGR) is on the list of such stocks currently recommended by our proprietary system. In addition to a favorable Growth Score, it carries a top Zacks Rank.

    Research shows that stocks carrying the best growth features consistently beat the market. And returns are even better for stocks that possess the combination of a Growth Score of A or B and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy).

    Here are three of the most important factors that make the stock of this discount cigarette maker a great growth pick right now.

    Earnings Growth

    Earnings growth is arguably the most important factor, as stocks exhibiting exceptionally surging profit levels tend to attract the attention of most investors. For growth investors, double-digit earnings growth is highly preferable, as it is often perceived as an indication of strong prospects (and stock price gains) for the company under consideration.

    While the historical EPS growth rate for Vector is 5.4%, investors should actually focus on the projected growth. The company's EPS is expected to grow 17.7% this year, crushing the industry average, which calls for EPS growth of 2.1%.

    Impressive Asset Utilization Ratio

    Asset utilization ratio -- also known as sales-to-total-assets (S/TA) ratio -- is often overlooked by investors, but it is an important indicator in growth investing. This metric exhibits how efficiently a firm is utilizing its assets to generate sales.

    Right now, Vector has an S/TA ratio of 1.29, which means that the company gets $1.29 in sales for each dollar in assets. Comparing this to the industry average of 0.95, it can be said that the company is more efficient.

    While the level of efficiency in generating sales matters a lot, so does the sales growth of a company. And Vector looks attractive from a sales growth perspective as well. The company's sales are expected to grow 2.4% this year versus the industry average of 0%.

    Promising Earnings Estimate Revisions

    Superiority of a stock in terms of the metrics outlined above can be further validated by looking at the trend in earnings estimate revisions. A positive trend is of course favorable here. Empirical research shows that there is a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.

    The current-year earnings estimates for Vector have been revising upward. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current year has surged 19.7% over the past month.

    Bottom Line

    While the overall earnings estimate revisions have made Vector a Zacks Rank #2 stock, it has earned itself a Growth Score of A based on a number of factors, including the ones discussed above.

    This combination positions Vector well for outperformance, so growth investors may want to bet on it.

    3 Reasons Growth Investors Will Love Vector (VGR)

    Investors seek growth stocks to capitalize on above-average growth in financials that help these securities grab the market's attention and produce exceptional returns. But finding a great growth stock is not easy at all.

    That's because, these stocks usually carry above-average risk and volatility. In fact, betting on a stock for which the growth story is actually over or nearing its end could lead to significant loss.
