Is Domtar Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Domtar Corporation's P/E ratio

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

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Domtar 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.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Domtar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Domtar Corporation's share price.
