Is Wizz Air 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.

PEG ratio

Wizz Air's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 27.1754. 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 Wizz Air's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
