Is HTC under- or over-valued?
Valuing HTC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HTC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HTC's PEG ratio
HTC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.23. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into HTC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
