Price to Earnings To Growth

Indicator Description

Generally speaking, PEG ratio is a 'quick and dirty' way to measure how the current price of a firm's stock relates to its earnings and growth rate. The main benefit of using PEG ratio is that investors can compare the relative valuations of companies within different industries without analyzing their P/E ratios.

PEG Ratio indicates the potential value of an equity instrument and is calculated by dividing Price to Earnings (P/E) ratio into earnings growth rate. Most analysts and investors prefer this measure to a Price to Earnings (P/E) ratio because it incorporates the future growth of a firm. The low PEG ratio usually implies that an equity instrument is undervalued; whereas PEG of 1 may indicate that an equity is reasonably priced under given expectations of future growth.
