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 823x. In other words, Alaska Air Group shares trade at around 823x 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 $145 million.

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.
