PEER Analysis: -
The price to earnings ratio of OGDC is better than the market for the petroleum industry and also its peer which includes PPL and MARI. OGDC is also trading below its estimated book value. The book value is Rs. 174.54 the stock is undervalued by 55% which is significantly below book value. The growth of the share is slow and the price of the stock compared to the market is highly volatile. Growth is slow concerning the peer companies in the industry. The EPS of MARI is very high meaning that it has good earnings as compared to its share price. At the same time, the share price of MARI is too high so it is not a good buy for a middle-class investor.
From the lower figure, we can see that OGDC is the most sophisticated stock and is good as the stock price is Rs. 96.61 it has a good dividend yield and the price-to-earning ratio is also better. Price to earnings ratio of PPL is good but on the other hand, the price-to-book value ratio is greater which is not a good thing.
So we can conclude that OGDC is the best stock among its peer and is pretty valuable.
Around 70 mutual funds have invested in OGDC which means that fund managers trust OGDC to give higher returns and be a useful investment for their customers and investors as a whole.
The share is bound to be a good investment but the growth and return must be slow. The stock is a valuable investment in the long term for investors looking to gain profits in long term must invest in the stock.
