Is Parker-Hannifin Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's P/E ratio

Parker-Hannifin Corporation'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, Parker-Hannifin Corporation 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.

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's PEG ratio

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2559. 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 Parker-Hannifin Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's EBITDA

Parker-Hannifin Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$5.2 billion (£4.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Parker-Hannifin Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Parker-Hannifin Corporation share price volatility
