    I've never bought a stock before, isn't a PEG of 2.27 pretty expensive?

    a PEG of 2.27 isn't expensive. PEG doesn't contain any information at all- whether through dishonesty or incompetence, professional "analysts" are shockingly bad at forecasting earnings and earnings growth.

    large caps are predominantly held by institutions. institutions hold a stock mostly because other institutions hold that stock. so... yeah. welcome to stock investing. if you've got a systematic way of making your decisions, and keep good notes (so you can debug- quality control is *everything*), you are immediately and permanently in the 95th percentile.
