    Macy's: Strong And Undervalued Compared To Peer Group



    PEG ratio: 1.09. This PEG ratio, a better indication of a stocks valuation than PE, is low by most standards and points to the company being valued below its peers.

    SKS: 1.98
    JWN: 1.26
    EV/EBIDA: 6.2. This is yet another barometer of valuation and indicates that all three of these companies are below the recommended threshold of 10, but that M is the cheapest amongst its peer group.

    SKS: 7.42
    JWN: 7.88
    Return on equity: 21.93%. MSN Money speaks of this 1 year ROE as being "stellar" and this points to the fact that M is utilizing stockholder equity well. Though the figure is not as high as JWN, M is a lot larger and has not put forth the capital into its operation than JWN has in the past several years.

    SKS: 5.48%
    JWN: 36.05%
    Cash-Debt: -$5.86 Billion. This is one point of weakness within M's financials. The company is holding a large amount of debt, but because of cash flow, the debt level is not unmanageable.

    SKS: -$299 million
    JWN: -$1.86 billion
    Dividend: 2.2%. M pays a very healthy dividend, which is higher than its competitors. Although the stock is by no means "high-yielding" this gives investors a higher income stream than its competitors.
