PEG Ratio

A stock's P/E ratio divided by the annual growth rate of its company's earnings.

A popular rule of thumb in picking growth stocks is to consider a stock underpriced if its PEG falls much below 1, and overpriced if the PEG is much greater than 1.

See the main article for a calculator and discussion of this rule's accuracy.
