Its FQ3 non-GAAP earnings per share improved significantly from last year’s covid-hit $0.11 to $1.43, also surpassing the pre-covid quarterly loss of $0.73 per share.

Although Signet Jewelers shares have pulled back more than 18% over the last two weeks, the stock is still up more than 225% this year, leaving little room for more upward movement.

Is Signet undervalued?

From an investment perspective, Signet Jewelers shares trade at attractive trailing 12-month and forward P/E ratios of 9.05 and 10.50, respectively, making the stock an exciting option for bargain hunters.

However, analysts are less optimistic about its earnings growth, predicting a decline of more than 166% this year.

Therefore, the stock may not be an ideal option for growth investors.
