Singtel's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Singtel shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.
Singtel's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4894. 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 Singtel's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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 Singtel.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 24.65
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Singtel's overall score of 24.65 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 27th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Singtel 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.).
Environmental score: 9.92/100
Singtel's environmental score of 9.92 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Singtel is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.19/100
Singtel's social score of 12.19 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Singtel is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 11.54/100
Singtel's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Singtel is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Singtel scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Singtel has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 312.13% of net profits
Recently Singtel has paid out, on average, around 312.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Singtel shareholders could enjoy a 1.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Singtel's case, that would currently equate to about S$0.075 per share.
Singtel's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Singtel's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$1.9382 up to S$2.5825. 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 (SG average) beta is 1, while Singtel's is 0.0501. This would suggest that Singtel's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
