Valuing Cairn Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cairn Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cairn Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Cairn Energy shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
However, Cairn Energy's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the oil & gas e&p industry or those of similar companies.
Cairn Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.61. 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 Cairn Energy'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 Cairn Energy's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
