Is Rolls-Royce under- or over-valued?

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

Rolls-Royce's P/E ratio

Rolls-Royce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Rolls-Royce shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

Rolls-Royce's PEG ratio

Rolls-Royce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.4926. 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 Rolls-Royce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have Rolls-Royce's shares ever split?

However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rolls-Royce shares which in turn could have impacted Rolls-Royce's share price.
