Is Aptiv under- or over-valued?

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

Aptiv's P/E ratio

Aptiv's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Aptiv shares trade at around 23x recent earnings.

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

Aptiv's PEG ratio

Aptiv's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.0175. 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 Aptiv's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Aptiv's EBITDA

Aptiv's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.6 billion.

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

Shorting Aptiv shares

There are currently 3.8 million Aptiv shares held short by investors – that's known as Aptiv's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 3.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aptiv shares can be evaluated.

Aptiv's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aptiv's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aptiv shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aptiv shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Aptiv's SIR currently stands at 1.91. In other words for every 100,000 Aptiv shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1910 shares are currently held short.

However Aptiv's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aptiv shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aptiv shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aptiv's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aptiv shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0163% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aptiv shares, roughly 16 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Aptiv.

Aptiv share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3.3% of net profits

Recently Aptiv has paid out, on average, around 3.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aptiv shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aptiv's case, that would currently equate to about $0.22 per share.

While Aptiv's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Aptiv is investing more in its future growth.

Aptiv's most recent dividend payout was on 19 February 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Aptiv's shares ever split?

Aptiv's shares were split on a 1193:1000 basis on 5 December 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1193 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aptiv shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aptiv shares which in turn could have impacted Aptiv's share price.

Aptiv share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Aptiv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.22 up to $159.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

APTV.US volatility(beta: 2.19)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 Aptiv's is 2.1878. This would suggest that Aptiv's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
