TE Connectivity Is Reasonably Priced:

Compared to the Technology sector's average of 27.16, TE Connectivity has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 17.36 and, according to its EPS guidance of 7.66, an expected P/E ratio of 16.18. TE Connectivity's PEG ratio is 0.09 based on its 183.8% annual average growth rate of historical and projected earnings per share. However, we believe that it is more prudent to calculate the PEG ratio using the broader market's 5-year expected EPS growth rate of 13.05%, because the growth rate implied by TE Connectivity's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 1.33, which implies that the company's shares might in fact be fairly valued.

Furthermore, TE Connectivity is likely undervalued in terms of its equity because its P/B ratio is 3.575 compared to its sector average of 6.23. The company's shares are currently trading 88.93% above their fair value as expressed by Benjamin Graham's formula:

√(22.5 * 5-year average EPS * book value per share) = √(22.5 * 5.33 * 35.88) = $65.6

11 analysts are following TE Connectivity and have set target prices ranging from $115.0 to $160.0 per share. On average, they have given the company a rating of buy. At the current price of $123.94, TEL is trading -9.71% away from its average analyst target price of $137.27 per share, implying an analyst consensus of some upside potential for the stock.
