Is CGI stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing CGI stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CGI's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CGI's P/E ratio
CGI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, CGI shares trade at around 22x 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.
CGI's PEG ratio
CGI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5515. 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 CGI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
CGI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a CGI's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$13.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||16.08%|
|Gross profit TTM||$4.1 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||8.99%|
|Return on equity TTM||20.63%|
|Market capitalisation||$24.4 billion|

CGI'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 CGI.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
CGI's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 25.27
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and CGI's overall score of 25.27 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 26th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like CGI 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.).
CGI's environmental score
Environmental score: 7.16/100
CGI's environmental score of 7.16 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CGI is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
CGI's social score
Social score: 18.8/100
CGI's social score of 18.8 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that CGI is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
CGI's governance score
Governance score: 15.81/100
CGI's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that CGI is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
CGI share dividends
We're not expecting CGI to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have CGI's shares ever split?
CGI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 January 2000. 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 CGI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CGI shares which in turn could have impacted CGI's share price.
CGI share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, CGI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $72.23 up to $105.06. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CGI's is 0.86. This would suggest that CGI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
