Is CGI stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

CGI's P/E ratio

CGI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, CGI shares trade at around 18x 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.

CGI's PEG ratio

CGI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.89. 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 CGI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CGI's EBITDA

CGI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.2 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a CGI's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like CGI is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

CGI share dividends

We're not expecting CGI to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have CGI's shares ever split?

CGI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 January 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CGI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CGI shares which in turn could have impacted CGI's share price.

CGI share price volatility
