Is Alaska Air Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Alaska Air Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Alaska Air Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Alaska Air Group's P/E ratio

Alaska Air Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 125x. In other words, Alaska Air Group shares trade at around 125x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Alaska Air Group's PEG ratio

Alaska Air Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Alaska Air Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Alaska Air Group's EBITDA

Alaska Air Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Alaska Air Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Have Alaska Air Group's shares ever split?

Alaska Air Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 July 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Alaska Air Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Alaska Air Group shares which in turn could have impacted Alaska Air Group's share price.

Alaska Air Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Alaska Air Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.19 up to $61.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALK.US volatility(beta: 1.49)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Alaska Air Group's is 1.4862. This would suggest that Alaska Air Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
