The all sell below their stated book value, a sure sign of just how unwanted they&s;ve become. They languish sadly in the remote, distant land of the very, very low price/earnings ratio. These are the most unloved stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.

Will some contrarian stock picker eventually find them attractive for who they are? Are there any remaining bold investors out there who track down equities this cheap and out-of-favor? I don&s;t know, but here are 5 NYSE-listed stocks that few want to even dance with:

&l;strong&g;IAMGOLD Corporation&l;/strong&g; is a Canadian-based mining outfit that is now trading at a level just below its book value. The price/earnings ratio is a staggeringly low 5.

Top 5 Value Stocks To Own Right Now: Suncor Energy Inc.(SU)

  • [By Stephan Byrd]

    Addenda Capital Inc. increased its holdings in shares of Suncor Energy Inc. (NYSE:SU) (TSE:SU) by 97.0% in the second quarter, according to the company in its most recent filing with the SEC. The institutional investor owned 3,121,057 shares of the oil and gas producer’s stock after purchasing an additional 1,536,736 shares during the quarter.

Addenda Capital Inc. owned approximately 0.19% of Suncor Energy worth $117,176,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

    In early June, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) put out a press release announcing that it was “set up for strong production for the remainder of the year.” Driving Suncor’s view was the fact that it finished all the major maintenance projects across its facilities and its recently completed expansion projects were exceeding expectations. 

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    With the country’s current pipeline capacity filled to the brim, it makes it nearly impossible for producers to expand output much further, since the only way to get those supplies to market centers is via rail, which is much more expensive. That’s why leading Canadian oil sands producer Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) recently said that it wouldn’t approve any more expansion projects until it sees construction start on new pipelines.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    It seems every quarter lately, Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU) has had to deal with some grueling challenge affecting its bottom line — whether it’s the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, the technical failures at its Syncrude oil sands upgrading facility, or the inability for other companies to build crude oil pipelines out of Alberta. This past quarter, the lack of pipelines really reared its head, and the price of Canadian crude oil slipped below $10 per barrel in the fourth quarter. But despite this problem and the ones that have preceded it, Suncor has somehow found a way to produce respectable results.
