DISH Network Corp (DISH) receives a weak valuation score of 30 from InvestorsObserver's analysis. Our proprietary scoring system considers the overall health of the company by looking at the stock's price, earnings, and growth rate to determine if it represents a good value. DISH holds a better value than 30% of stocks at its current price. Investors who are focused on long-term growth through buy-and-hold investing will find the Valuation Rank especially relevant when allocating their assets.
DISH's trailing-12-month Price to Earnings (PE) ratio of 14.2 puts it around the historical average of roughly 15. DISH is a average value at its current trading price as investors are paying around what its worth in relation to the company's earnings. DISH's trailing-12-month earnings per share (EPS) of 2.46 does justify what it is currently trading at in the market. Trailing PE ratios, however, do not factor in a company's projected growth rate, resulting in some firms having high PE ratios due to high growth potentially enticing investors even if current earnings are low.
DISH currently has a 12-month-forward-PE-to-Growth (PEG) ratio of 4. The market is currently overvaluing DISH in relation to its projected growth due to the PEG ratio being above the fair market value of 1. DISH's PEG comes from its forward price to earnings ratio being divided by its growth rate. Because PEG ratios include more fundamentals of a company's overall health with additional focus on the future, they are one of the most used valuation metrics by analysts.
DISH's valuation metrics are weak at its current price due to a overvalued PEG ratio due to strong growth. DISH's PE and PEG are worse than the market average resulting in a below average valuation score.
