Alternative ways to invest in Man Group

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Man Group), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Man Group is a major part of the London stock exchange, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Man Group 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. Check out the Man Group P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Man Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Man Group shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10).

Man Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.71. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued 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 Man Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Man Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £489 million.

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