Unlocking the Potential of Teck Resources Stock

Teck Resources shares fell by -3.6% during the day's afternoon session, and are now trading at a price of $49.17. Is it time to buy the dip? To better answer that question, it's essential to check if the market is valuing the company's shares fairly in terms of its earnings and equity levels.

Teck Resources Has Attractive P/B and P/E Ratios:

Teck Resources Limited engages in exploring for, acquiring, developing, and producing natural resources in Asia, Europe, and North America. The company belongs to the Industrials sector, which has an average price to earnings (P/E) ratio of 25.4 and an average price to book (P/B) ratio of 3.23. In contrast, Teck Resources has a trailing 12 month P/E ratio of 22.0 and a P/B ratio of 0.97.

When we divide Teck Resources's P/E ratio by its expected EPS growth rate of the next five years, we obtain its PEG ratio of -3.92. Since it's negative, the company has negative growth expectations, and most investors will probably avoid the stock unless it has an exceptionally low P/E and P/B ratio.
