What are the prospects for Tesco and Woodford’s four companies in the coming year? The following table gives some forecast valuation data.
|Company||P/E||Earnings-per-Share Growth||PEG||Dividend Yield|
|Smith & Nephew||14.3||4.7%||3||2.3%|
On these numbers, Tesco looks a clear “value” winner. The supermarket takes the top spot on a low price-to-earnings ratio and high yield. It also takes second place on earnings-per-share growth and P/E-to-EPS growth; in the case of the latter, low equals better value.
The next best pick on the numbers is outsourcing group Capita, which comes top on two measures: EPS growth and PEG.
