Alternative ways to invest in Stagecoach 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 Stagecoach Group), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Stagecoach 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 Stagecoach 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 Stagecoach Group P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Stagecoach 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 0x. In other words, Stagecoach Group shares trade at around 0x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, Stagecoach Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

    Stagecoach Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.3832. 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 Stagecoach 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.

    However, it's sensible to consider Stagecoach Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
