Alternative ways to invest in Philip Morris International

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 Philip Morris International), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Philip Morris International is a major part of the NYSE, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Is Philip Morris International under- or over-valued?

Philip Morris International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Philip Morris International's shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44).

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

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Philip Morris International'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 Philip Morris International's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Philip Morris International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $14 billion (£11.1 billion).

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

To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.
