Why Exelon (EXC) is a Top Value Stock for the Long-Term

For new and old investors, taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals.

Many investors also have a go-to methodology that helps guide their buy and sell decisions. One way to find winning stocks based on your preferred way of investing is to use the Zacks Style Scores, which are indicators that rate stocks based on three widely-followed investing types: value, growth, and momentum.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to This Value Stock

Different than growth or momentum investors, value-focused investors are all about finding good stocks at good prices, and discovering which companies are trading under what their true value is before the broader market catches on. The Value Style Score utilizes ratios like P/E, PEG, Price/Sales, and Price/Cash Flow to help pick out the most attractive and discounted stocks.

Exelon (EXC)

Chicago, IL-based Exelon Corporation completed the previously announced separation of the power generation and competitive energy business, namely Constellation Energy Corp., into a separate entity, which will trade under the symbol “CEG”. Exelon retained the transmission and distribution utility business, which will continue to be called Exelon and trade under the symbol “EXC”. The separation was completed on Feb 1, 2022.

EXC boasts a Value Style Score of B and VGM Score of B, and holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) rating. Shares of Exelon are trading at a forward earnings multiple of 14.3X, as well as a PEG Ratio of 2.5, a Price/Cash Flow ratio of 5.9X, and a Price/Sales ratio of 1.6X.

A company's earnings performance is important for value investors as well. For fiscal 2024, five analysts revised their earnings estimate higher in the last 60 days for EXC, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.02 to $2.43 per share. EXC also holds an average earnings surprise of 0.8%.

With strong valuation and earnings metrics, a good Zacks Rank, and top-tier Value and VGM Style Scores, investors should strongly think about adding EXC to their portfolios.
