Welcome to Episode #320 of the Value Investor Podcast.
Every week, Tracey Ryniec, the editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio, shares some of her top value investing tips and stock picks.
With so much talk of the rebound in growth stocks in 2023, it might be lost on many that there are actually value stocks rallying this year as well.
In fact, some value stocks are actually breaking out to new 52-week highs this year with little fanfare.
Where can you find these stocks?
Tracey can tell you where they aren’t: they aren’t energy stocks. Energy was the best performing sector in the S&P 500 for the last 2 years but it’s been weak so far in 2023.
3 Top Value Stocks Breaking Out in 2023
- Penske Automotive Group, Inc. PAG
Penske Automotive Group is an auto and truck retailer which also owns 25% of Penske Logistics.

Zacks Names “Single Best Pick to Double”
From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.
It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% over last year, yet still dirt cheap. With unrelenting demand, soaring 2022 earnings estimates, and $1.5 billion for repurchasing shares, retail investors could jump in at any time.
