As for the value-trap industries, there are seven, with the most notable being oil, gas and consumable fuels, capital markets, semiconductors and automobiles. There are 13 industries noted as attractive, with financial-related industries dominating the list, including the consumer-finance, diversified-financial-markets and insurance industries finishing in the top five.
Within the value-trap industries, I also looked for stocks that met the same sort of criteria. One note: For valuation with stocks, I used our proprietary valuation score, which looks at several measures. Here are stocks in the value-trap industries that look attractive from valuation measures, but have displayed weak price and earnings momentum.
