Value stocks trade at lower prices despite their strong fundamentals like sales, dividends or earnings. Key characteristics of value stocks are high dividends and low P/E and P/B ratios. Thus, they are precisely opposite to growth stocks.

Companies with solid fundamentals sometimes have lower stock prices as they might be facing legal issues or negative publicity. Of course, value stocks are riskier, but they could also have long-term growth potential.
