Alternative ways to invest in Greencoat UK Wind

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

Greencoat UK Wind 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 Greencoat UK Wind 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 Greencoat UK Wind P/E ratio, PEG ratio and EBITDA

Greencoat UK Wind's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Greencoat UK Wind shares trade at around 3x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, Greencoat UK Wind's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the asset management industry or those of similar companies.
