Alternative ways to invest in The Procter & Gamble Company

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 The Procter & Gamble Company), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

The Procter & Gamble Company 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 The Procter & Gamble Company 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 The Procter & Gamble Company P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA.

The Procter & Gamble Company'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, The Procter & Gamble Company's shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United States stock markets on average as of November 09, 2023 (20.44). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, The Procter & Gamble Company's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

The Procter & Gamble Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2845. 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 The Procter & Gamble Company'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 The Procter & Gamble Company's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

The Procter & Gamble Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $24.2 billion (£18.8 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of The Procter & Gamble Company'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.
