Is it a good time to buy IAG stock?

Is IAG under- or over-valued?

Valuing IAG stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of IAG's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

IAG's P/E ratio

IAG's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, IAG shares trade at around 1x 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.

IAG's PEG ratio

IAG's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 IAG's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

IAG's 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 IAG.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

IAG's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 27.89

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and IAG's overall score of 27.89 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 48th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

IAG's environmental score

Environmental score: 11.4/100

IAG's environmental score of 11.4 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that IAG is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

IAG's social score

Social score: 13.28/100

IAG's social score of 13.28 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that IAG is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

IAG's governance score

Governance score: 10.71/100

IAG's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that IAG is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

IAG's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, IAG scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that IAG hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
