Is International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A under- or over-valued?

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

International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A's P/E ratio

International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A shares trade at around 3x 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.

International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A's PEG ratio

International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into International Consolidated Airlines Group S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
