Alternative ways to invest in DCC

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

DCC 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 DCC 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 DCC P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

DCC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, DCC shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the United Kingdom stock market as of 09 November, 2023 (10). 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, DCC's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the industry or those of similar companies.

  • Kosmos Energy (KOS.US): 14.39

DCC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.12. 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 DCC'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 DCC's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

    DCC's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is Β£821.5 million.

    The EBITDA is a measure of a DCC'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.
