Fundamentals & Catalysts

  • Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 15.79766014620319 is higher than its current P/E ratio of 12.37, implying that analysts are expecting a decrease in earnings.
  • The company's price/earnings-to-growth ratio (PEG Ratio), a widely used indicator of a stock's true value while also factoring in expected earnings growth, currently stands at -0.61. A fairly valued company should have a PEG ratio of 1.0. When a company's PEG exceeds 1.0, it's considered overvalued while a stock with a PEG of less than 1.0 is considered undervalued.

Some industries are known for having much higher debt to equity ratios than others.
