Alternative ways to invest in Big Yellow Group

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Big Yellow Group), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Big Yellow Group is a major part of the London stock exchange, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Big Yellow Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value. Check out the Big Yellow Group P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Big Yellow Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Big Yellow Group shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10).

However, Big Yellow Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

Big Yellow Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4018. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

However, it's sensible to consider Big Yellow Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Big Yellow Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £123.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Big Yellow Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.
