PEG is price to earnings to growth. It's a forward assumption. If you're looking at Yahoo! finance figures, those PEGs use a 5 year projected growth figure. It's usually off, in my opinion, depending on the company.
Oftentimes PEGs are not appropriate for lower growth companies because there is not a lot of expected growth. Some utilities deserve multiple expansion because of there growth, and that's where PEG can be useful.

Good question. From my data the answer is no.
Thank you for your comment.

T and CTL are the two to avoid for now. Thank you for your comment.
Best of luck with your picks.
Generally speaking you're right but there's more to the story including currency movement and demand for copper substitutes.
Thanks. Transport and related costs are definitely as issue. I see this in the oil and gas markets as well.
