Taking a look at BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK)’s valuation level, we can focus on several ratios. One of the quickest ways to determine the projected value of a stock is the price to earnings growth, or PEG ratio.
This formula was popularized by Peter Lynch and according to his calculations, a stock which is fairly valued will have a price to earnings ratio equal to its rate of growth. Simply put, a stock with a PEG ratio of 1 would be considered fairly valued. A stock with a ratio of under 1.0 would be undervalued and a stock with a PEG over 1.0 would be considered over valued. BlackRock, Inc. currently has a PEG ratio of 2.71.The primary goal for some beginner traders might be just trying to survive.
