Is TELUS 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 TELUS P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

TELUS's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, TELUS shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

TELUS's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3066. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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

TELUS's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $4.9 billion (£4 billion).

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