If the price/earnings ratio of the stock is significantly below the p/e of the market as a whole — and if it&s;s&a;nbsp; trading for less than its book value, some analysts place it on the list of &q;cheap stocks.&q; Using the &l;a href=&q;https://finviz.com/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Financial Visualization website&l;/a&g;, I screened to see if any such stocks existed right now and I found these few. Just to be sure, I screened to see if they had steady earnings records, held reasonable debt levels and paid regular dividends. Here&s;s 4 of those that made it through the initial screens:
&l;strong&g;Entercom Communications&l;/strong&g; — they own and operate hundreds of radio stations. Audio provider. Media company. Whatever they&s;re calling it these days. With a p/e of 4 and now trading at about half its book value, this one definitely makes the cheap stock list.

Jefferies announced on Wednesday that it has cut its rating on Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc. (SKT).
The firm has downgraded SKT from “Buy” to “Hold,” and has lowered the company’s price target from $40 to $35. This price target suggests an 8% upside from the stock’s current price of $32.22.
Analyst Omotayo Okusanya commented: “We expect near-term headwinds for the mall and outlet mall segment as tenant sales growth appears to be slowing.”
“At SKT, development yields on two projects have also been reduced. Further, rising interest rates negatively impact our DDM-derived PT. Our lowered PT of $35 represents a 10% total return over the next-twelve-months (NTM); we are downgrading to Hold,” added the analyst.
Tanger Factory Outlet shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Wednesday. The stock is up more than 5% YTD.
