Drilling into the "PEGY" Bank

Drilling into the

For the article I will be highlighting Energy companies that are undervalued based on their PEGY ratio. For a little background the PEGY ratio, it is simply the PE ratio of a stock divided by that stocks expected Dividend Growth + Its Dividend Yield. An example below: A stock is trading at a PE ratio of 20, is expected to grow earnings at 20%, and has a 5% dividend yield.

PEGY

The goal is take the PEG ratio a step further to factor in dividends into the equation to see which companies are undervalued not just based on earnings growth but also factoring in dividend yield. The data I will be using will be from Finviz.com which is where I will screen for Energy companies, then use the data found there and enter it into a spreadsheet and calculate PEGY ratio’s for each company. In addition to broad items like average volume, sector etc, I wanted to use other metrics like earnings growth this year and projected for next year because I wanted to make sure I included companies that were growing earnings now, and projected to grow earnings in the future.

Finviz Screener Criteria

Sector: Basic Materials
Dividend Yield: Positive
EPS Growth Next 5 years: Positive
PE: Profitable
Forward PE: Profitable
Country: USA
Average Volume: Over 1 Million Shares
Market Cap: Over $10 Billion
EPS Growth this year: Positive
EPS Growth Next year: Positive
EPS Growth Qtr over Qtr: Positive

Data Table
For my calculation of the PEGY ratio I used the data from the table below. The smaller the PEGY ratio the more undervalued the company is.

PEGY Ratios for Energy Companies

Observations
From my observation of the table I find that there were 4 companies that had a PEGY ratio of less than 1 meaning that by that metric they are undervalued, and could warrant further research into those names. The overall point of this article was to search for undervalued Energy companies using a ratio that is not used in the mainstream investment world, and in doing so hopefully gives a better view of undervalued companies rather than just using a simple PE ratio.
