Using Relative Valuation techniques:
A. Price-Earnings Ratio (P/E) + explanation
B. Price-Book Value Ratio (P/BV) + explanation
Note A: How to apply a P/E valuation technique?
First you look for the current stock price of the stock
Next you compute the expected Earnings-Per-Share (EPS):
Expected EPS = Current EPS x (1 + growth rate)
Third, you divide the current price by the expected EPS to get a P/E multiple.
Fourth, you compute the P/E of the industry by taking the average P/E of several large competitors.
Lastly, you compare your stock's P/E with the industry's average P/E, if your stock's P/E is lower than the industry's average P/E, your stock is considered "undervalue".
