Is Linde under- or over-valued?
Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Linde P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA
Linde's current stock price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Linde stocks trade at around 34x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of September 25, 2023 (21.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Linde's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7259. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Linde's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Linde's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $11.5 billion ($15.7 billion CAD).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Linde's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
