WAG PE stands at 18.16 above the industry’s average of 17.26. The stock is currently trading 6% below its intrinsic value of $42.80 this suggests that the stock is undervalued at these levels. WAG’s current Price/Sales of 0.54 is at the average of its industry of 0.52. The beta of 1.28 implies higher volatility of the stock with respect to the S&P 500. The firm pays a 2.6% dividend yield.

The company has demonstrated neutral technical signs, the company stands on very sound financial footing but lower sales makes us cautious at current price level. WAG stock is 8.43% higher year to date. My overall score for WAG is 5.00/10.00


I am neutral on the stock.
