Is Domtar Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Domtar Corporation's P/E ratio

Domtar Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 127x. In other words, Domtar Corporation shares trade at around 127x 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.

Domtar Corporation's PEG ratio

Domtar Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.86. 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 Domtar Corporation'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 Domtar Corporation's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Domtar Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Domtar Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Domtar Corporation's share price.

This would suggest that Domtar Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
