Is Celanese Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Celanese Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Celanese Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Celanese Corporation's P/E ratio
Celanese 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 6x. In other words, Celanese Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.
Celanese Corporation's PEG ratio
Celanese Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.9697. 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 Celanese 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.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Celanese Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Celanese Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.
While Celanese Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Celanese Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
