Is Methanex Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Methanex Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Methanex Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Methanex Corporation's P/E ratio
Methanex 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 7x. In other words, Methanex Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.
Methanex Corporation's PEG ratio
Methanex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 Methanex 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 9.63% of net profits
Recently Methanex Corporation has paid out, on average, around 9.63% of net profits as dividends.

This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Methanex Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Methanex Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.57 per share.
While Methanex Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Methanex Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
