For investors seeking potential opportunities in the construction sector, the ASX offers a pool of small-cap stocks that boast attractive low price-to-earnings (P/E) multiples. In this article, we will shine a spotlight on two such companies, Big River Industries Limited (ASX: BRI) and Acrow Formwork and Construction (ASX: ACF), which have been flying under the radar but offer compelling investment potential.

  1. Big River Industries Limited (ASX: BRI)

Big River Industries is a leading manufacturer and distributor of timber and building products in Australia. The company's diverse product portfolio includes timber flooring, structural plywood, formwork products, and more, catering to various construction and infrastructure needs. Despite being a small-cap stock, ASX BRI has been making significant strides in the industry, supported by its robust financial performance and strategic expansion plans.

One of the key attractions of BRI is its attractive low P/E multiple, indicating that the stock may be undervalued relative to its earnings. Investors may find the company's growth prospects and solid financial position intriguing, making it a potential hidden gem in the construction sector.

  1. Acrow Formwork and Construction (ASX: ACF)

Acrow Formwork and Construction is a specialist formwork and scaffolding company that provides solutions for the construction industry in Australia. The company has earned a strong reputation for its expertise and reliable services, making it a preferred partner for various construction projects. ASX ACF has been successfully delivering projects across infrastructure, commercial, and residential sectors, positioning itself as a promising player in the construction space.

Similar to BRI, ACF also offers an attractive low P/E multiple, hinting at its potential as an undervalued stock. Investors looking for exposure to the construction sector may find ACF's solid performance and growth trajectory appealing, making it another hidden gem worth considering.

It is important to note that small-cap stocks can carry higher risk due to their size and volatility. As with any investment decision, conducting thorough research and seeking professional advice is crucial to make informed choices in the stock market. However, for investors with an appetite for uncovering hidden gems, BRI and ACF, along with other promising small-cap stocks in the construction sector, may present intriguing opportunities with their attractive low P/E multiples and growth potential.
