Is PPG Industries under- or over-valued?

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

PPG Industries's P/E ratio

PPG Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, PPG Industries stocks trade at around 23x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

PPG Industries's PEG ratio

PPG Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7124. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

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

PPG Industries's EBITDA

PPG Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.6 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a PPG Industries's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "PPG.US"

There are currently 3.5 million PPG Industries stocks held short by investors – that's known as PPG Industries's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 3.5 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PPG Industries stocks can be evaluated.

PPG Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

PPG Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PPG Industries stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PPG Industries stocks traded daily (recently around 844079.42583732). PPG Industries's SIR currently stands at 4.18. In other words for every 100,000 PPG Industries stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4180 stocks are currently held short.

However PPG Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PPG Industries stocks, or, against the total number of tradable PPG Industries stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PPG Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 PPG Industries stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0149% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable PPG Industries stocks, roughly 15 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PPG Industries.

PPG Industries'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 PPG Industries.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

PPG Industries's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 28.8

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and PPG Industries's overall score of 28.8 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 48th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like PPG Industries 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.).

PPG Industries's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.67/100

PPG Industries's environmental score of 9.67 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PPG Industries is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

PPG Industries's social score

Social score: 7.78/100

PPG Industries's social score of 7.78 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PPG Industries is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

PPG Industries stock dividends

30%

Dividend payout ratio: 30.11% of net profits

Recently PPG Industries has paid out, on average, around 30.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PPG Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PPG Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $2.16 per share.

While PPG Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that PPG Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

PPG Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 9 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PPG Industries stocks ever split?

PPG Industries stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 June 2015. 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 PPG Industries stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for PPG Industries stocks which in turn could have impacted PPG Industries's stock price.

PPG Industries stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PPG Industries's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $115.2708 up to $182.3127. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PPG.US volatility(beta: 1.12)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while PPG Industries's is 1.1245. This would suggest that PPG Industries's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
