This version of the original article, by Tracey Ryniechas been edited* here by for length (…) and clarity ([ ]) to provide a fast & easy read.
  1. BP (BP) is a large integrated oil company. An oil stock? Right now? It’s certainly cheap.
    • It has a forward P/E of just 11.5 but earnings are expected to be up 89% in 2018 and another 9.4% in 2019.
    • It also pays a really juicy dividend, yielding 6%.
  2. Walgreens Boots (WBA) is the global drugstore chain and it is one of the few stocks on this list that is actually up over the last few months trading near its 52-week high.
    • it’s still got an attractive valuation with a forward P/E of 12.5.
  3. Sony Corp. (SNE) has transformed itself from a products company into a gaming and content company as its PlayStation heats up heading into the holidays.
    • Shares are off their earlier highs and the stock is still cheap, with a forward P/E of just 11.4.
  4. MetLife (MET) is a financial services giant operating in 40 countries in insurance, annuities, employee benefits and asset management.
    • Shares are down over 9% year-to-date.
    • It’s dirt cheap with a forward P/E of 8.4.
    • It even has an attractive PEG ratio of just 0.7. A PEG under 1.0 usually means a company has both growth and value, a rare combination.
  5. PACCAR (PCAR) makes trucks, truck engines and the aftermarket parts and services. In the third quarter it saw record truck production and record market share in Europe. But did Wall Street like it? No.
    • Shares are down 20% year-to-date on worries of a global recession.
    • Shares are cheap with a forward P/E of just 9.5 and a PEG ratio of 0.9. is being given away – check it out!
