Markets are overvaluing NSC in relation to its projected growth as its PEG ratio is currently above the fair market value of 1. 9.1'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.
