Is Procter & Gamble Company under- or over-valued?

Valuing Procter & Gamble Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Procter & Gamble Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Procter & Gamble Company's P/E ratio

Procter & Gamble Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Procter & Gamble Company shares trade at around 25x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Procter & Gamble Company's PEG ratio

Procter & Gamble Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.9823. 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 Procter & Gamble Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Procter & Gamble Company's EBITDA

Procter & Gamble Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$22.6 billion (£17.9 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Procter & Gamble Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Procter & Gamble Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Procter & Gamble Company's case, that would currently equate to about $3.708 per share.

Procter & Gamble Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
