Is Transportadora de Gas del Sur S-A under- or over-valued?

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

Transportadora de Gas del Sur S-A's P/E ratio
