Do you consider yourself a value investor?

We screened the consumer goods sector for stocks that appear undervalued relative to their cash flows, indicated by high ratios of levered free cash flow/enterprise value.

Levered free cash flow is the free cash flow after deducting interest payments on outstanding debt. Enterprise value is the sum of the firm's value from all ownership sources: market cap, outstanding debt, and preferred shares. When companies have ratios of levered free cash flow/enterprise value in excess of 10%, it may indicate that the company as a whole is being undervalued.

We also screened for stocks that appear to be undervalued relative to earnings growth, with PEG below 1.
