Is Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima under- or over-valued?

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

Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima's P/E ratio

Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima shares trade at around 2x 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.

Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima's PEG ratio

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 Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte Sociedad Anónima's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
