Is Boeing 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.

PEG ratio

Boeing's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.5305. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Boeing'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 Boeing's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

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 Boeing.

Total ESG risk score

Boeing's total ESG risk: 41.15

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Boeing's overall score of 41.15 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 86th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

To gain some more context, you can compare Boeing's total ESG risk score against those of similar companies.

Environmental score

Boeing's environmental score: 12.02/100

Boeing's environmental score of 12.02 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Social score

Boeing's social score: 22.37/100

Boeing's social score of 22.37 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score

Boeing's governance score: 11.76/100

Boeing's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Boeing is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Controversy score

Boeing's controversy score: 4/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Boeing scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that Boeing has a damaged public profile.

Wondering how that compares? Below are the controversy scores of similar companies.

Boeing's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Boeing's shares have ranged in value from as little as $113.02 up to $229.67. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BA.US volatility(beta: 1.45)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Boeing's is 1.4527. This would suggest that Boeing's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put Boeing's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
