Right now I’m comparing some of the most popular companies in the FTSE 100 with their sector peers in an attempt to establish which one is the more attractive investment.
Today I’m looking at BG Group (LSE: BG) (NASDAQOTH: BRGGY.US).
First off, BG trades at a historic P/E of 14.8, which is above the oil & gas producers sector average P/E of 12. That said, BG’s closest peers, Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) (NYSE: RDS-B.US), trade at a historic P/E of 23 and 7.8 respectively, which makes BG’s valuation look relatively average.
