Fanhua in Focus

FANH may be an interesting play thanks to its forward PE of 8, its P/S ratio of 0.8, and its decent dividend yield of 8%. These factors suggest that Fanhua is a pretty good value pick, as investors have to pay a relatively low level for each dollar of earnings, and that FANH has decent revenue metrics to back up its earnings.

But before you think that Fanhua is just a pure value play, it is important to note that it has been seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate front as well. For current year earnings, the consensus has gone up by 3.4% in the past 30 days, thanks to one upward revision in the past one month compared to none lower.

This estimate strength is actually enough to push FANH to a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), suggesting it is poised to outperform. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

So really, Fanhua is looking great from a number of angles thanks to its PE below 20, a P/S ratio below one, and a strong Zacks Rank, meaning that this company could be a great choice for value investors at this time.
