Since Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February, stock markets across the world have been highly volatile and have pushed many London-listed stocks below their fair value.  These stocks are known as value stocks as they trade for relatively cheap valuations relative to their fundamentals, such as earnings, sales, dividends, and long-term potential. Value stocks generally have long-term return potential as compared to growth stocks because of underlying risk due to the skeptical attitude the market has towards them.

The point of value investing is to invest in stocks that are trading at discount to their intrinsic value or book value and sell them to make a profit when their prices rise. There are multiple metrics to find a value stock such as Price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, Enterprise-value-to-EBITDA (EV/EBITDA) ratio, Price/earnings to growth (PEG) ratio, and Price-to-book (P/B) ratio.
