Shell’s price-to-earnings-to-growth ratio

In this part, we’ll compare Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDS.A) PEG (price-to-earnings-to-growth) ratio with its peers’. We’ve considered the mean estimated PEG ratio, which depicts a stock’s valuation after factoring in the expected future growth rate. Usually, with everything else being equal, a PEG ratio lower than one signifies an undervalued stock. Shell’s PEG ratio stands at 0.24, below the average of 0.33 in its peer group, which comprises nine integrated energy companies.
