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 (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.8 billion.

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.

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).
