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 28x. In other words, PPG Industries shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
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 1.9436. 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 PPG Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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's governance score
Governance score: 8.85/100
PPG Industries's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that PPG Industries is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
PPG Industries's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. PPG Industries scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that PPG Industries has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
PPG Industries share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 37.7% of net profits
Recently PPG Industries has paid out, on average, around 37.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.96% 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 1.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PPG Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $2.31 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 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have PPG Industries's shares ever split?
PPG Industries's shares 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PPG Industries shares which in turn could have impacted PPG Industries's share price.
PPG Industries share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, PPG Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $110.809 up to $180.1143. 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 PPG Industries's is 1.2206. This would suggest that PPG Industries's shares 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).
