Personal Group Holdings Plc’s (LON:PGH) price-to-earnings (or “P/E”) ratio of 9.6x might make it look like a buy right now compared to the market in the United Kingdom, where around half of the companies have P/E ratios above 18x and even P/E’s above 37x are quite common. However, the P/E might be low for a reason and it requires further investigation to determine if it’s justified.
For example, consider that Personal Group Holdings’ financial performance has been pretty ordinary lately as earnings growth is non-existent. One possibility is that the P/E is low because investors think this benign earnings growth rate will likely underperform the broader market in the near future. If not, then existing shareholders may be feeling optimistic about the future direction of the share price.
