Is Auckland Airport under- or over-valued?

That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Auckland Airport's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Auckland Airport's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
