Is Rolls-Royce stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Rolls-Royce stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rolls-Royce's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Rolls-Royce's PEG ratio
Rolls-Royce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1558. 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 Rolls-Royce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Rolls-Royce'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 Rolls-Royce.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Rolls-Royce's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 29.13
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Rolls-Royce's overall score of 29.13 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 53rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Rolls-Royce 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.).
Rolls-Royce's environmental score
Environmental score: 9.05/100
Rolls-Royce's environmental score of 9.05 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Rolls-Royce is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Rolls-Royce's social score
Social score: 14.41/100
Rolls-Royce's social score of 14.41 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Rolls-Royce is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Rolls-Royce's governance score
Governance score: 4.67/100
Rolls-Royce's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Rolls-Royce is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Rolls-Royce's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Rolls-Royce scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Rolls-Royce has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Rolls-Royce share dividends
We're not expecting Rolls-Royce to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Rolls-Royce's shares ever split?
Rolls-Royce's shares were split on a 644:221 basis on 28 October 2020. So if you had owned 221 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 644 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rolls-Royce shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 65.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rolls-Royce shares which in turn could have impacted Rolls-Royce's share price.
Rolls-Royce share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Rolls-Royce's shares have ranged in value from as little as 64.44p up to 160p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Rolls-Royce's is 1.6809. This would suggest that Rolls-Royce's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
