Metrics Analysis

EL's trailing-12-month Price to Earnings (PE) ratio of 41.4 puts it above the historical average of roughly 15. EL is a poor value at its current trading price as investors are paying more than what its worth in relation to the company's earnings. EL's trailing-12-month earnings per share (EPS) of 8.25 does not 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. EL has a 12 month forward PE to Growth (PEG) ratio of 4.03. Markets are overvaluing EL in relation to its projected growth as its PEG ratio is currently above the fair market value of 1. 8.25's PEG comes from its forward price to earnings ratio being divided by its growth rate. PEG ratios are one of the most used valuation metrics due to its incorporation of more company fundamentals metrics and a focus on the firm's future rather than its past.

Summary

EL's valuation metrics are weak at its current price due to a overvalued PEG ratio despite strong growth. EL's PE and PEG are worse than the market average resulting in a below average valuation score. Click Here to get the full Report on Estee Lauder Companies Inc (EL) stock.
