Is PG-and-E stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

PG-and-E's P/E ratio

PG-and-E's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 126x. In other words, PG-and-E shares trade at around 126x recent earnings.

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.

PG-and-E's PEG ratio

PG-and-E's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6088. 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 PG-and-E's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

PG-and-E's EBITDA

PG-and-E's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.8 billion.

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

PG-and-E's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like PG-and-E.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

PG-and-E's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 46.8

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and PG-and-E's overall score of 46.8 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 92nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like PG-and-E 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.).

PG-and-E's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.8/100

PG-and-E's environmental score of 8.8 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PG-and-E is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

PG-and-E's social score

Social score: 28.37/100

PG-and-E's social score of 28.37 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PG-and-E is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

PG-and-E's governance score

Governance score: 12.13/100

PG-and-E's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that PG-and-E is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

PG-and-E's controversy score

Controversy score: 5/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. PG-and-E scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that PG-and-E's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.

Total ESG score 46.8

PG-and-E share dividends

We're not expecting PG-and-E to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have PG-and-E's shares ever split?

PG-and-E's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 July 1983. 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 PG-and-E shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PG-and-E shares which in turn could have impacted PG-and-E's share price.

PG-and-E share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PG-and-E's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.46 up to $13.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PCG.US volatility(beta: 1.15)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while PG-and-E's is 1.1526. This would suggest that PG-and-E's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
