Charles Stanley Group PLC’s (LON:CAY) Shares Lagging The Market But So Is The Business

Charles Stanley Group PLC’s (LON:CAY) price-to-earnings (or “P/E”) ratio of 7.8x might make it look like a strong 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 quite low for a reason and it requires further investigation to determine if it’s justified.

Charles Stanley Group certainly has been doing a good job lately as its earnings growth has been positive while most other companies have been seeing their earnings go backwards. It might be that many expect the strong earnings performance to degrade substantially, possibly more than the market, which has repressed the P/E. If you like the company, you’d be hoping this isn’t the case so that you could potentially pick up some stock while it’s out of favour.
