An unpopular industry or stock that usually has a low price-earnings ratio.

Out-of-Favor Industry or Stock

An industry or stock to which many analysts and investors do not pay attentions. Out-of-favor industries or stocks tend to have a low price-earnings ratio and may therefore be undervalued. That is, the low price does not necessarily come from a fundamental problem with the company, but may result simply from apathy on the part of investors. Value investors sometimes seek out-of-favor industries and stocks for long-term investments.
