Is O’Reilly Automotive under- or over-valued?

O’Reilly Automotive's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, O’Reilly Automotive shares trade at around 20x 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into O’Reilly Automotive's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
