Below are the three companies in the Publishing industry with the highest forward earnings yields.

The Company and its subsidiaries offer products and services to mass or targeted audiences by mail, in newspapers and stores, and online. Valassis also offers coupon redemption and management, promotion and sweepstakes security, and frequent shopper data collection and analysis.

In the past 52 weeks, Valassis Communications share prices have been bracketed by a low of $19.03 and a high of $31.34 and are now at $25.83, 36% above that low price. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone up 0.2% while the 50-day MA has declined 0.6%.
