Is DXC Technology 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.

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

DXC Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.28. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.
