What is PEG Ratio?

PEG ratio or Price/Earnings-Growth ratio is an attempt to normalize the P/E ratio with the expected earnings growth rate of the company.


The PEG ratio acts as a measure of value that takes into account future growth. Using this metric, investors can gauge whether high-growth stocks may be undervalued, even if they don’t appear so with the more common P/E ratio.

Typically P/E ratios are backward looking while the earnings growth rate is a forward looking metric. Future P/E ratio will be different than the one we use today. You could project a future P/E ratio if you wish, but this will introduce further uncertainty in the calculations. Still, many investors are fond of using the concept of Forward P/E and Forward PEG ratio. I strongly advise against this.

Negative PEG Ratio Connotation

A negative PEG ratio does not imply that the stock is a bad investment. It just means that you need to consider other ways of looking at the stock before you can judge if this is a good investment or not.
