Is Avis Budget Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Avis Budget Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avis Budget Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Avis Budget Group's PEG ratio
Avis Budget Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.76. 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 Avis Budget Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
