Is it a good time to buy CGI stock?

Is CGI 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.

P/E ratio

CGI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, CGI shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

PEG ratio

CGI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.89. 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 CGI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

EBITDA

CGI's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $2.1 billion (£1.6 billion).

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

Have CGI's shares ever split?

CGI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 January 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CGI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CGI shares which in turn could have impacted CGI's share price.

Share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CGI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $74.58 up to $93.93. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GIB.US volatility(beta: 1.01)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 CGI's is 1.005. This would suggest that CGI's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
