Is Autoliv under- or over-valued?

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

Autoliv's P/E ratio

Autoliv's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Autoliv shares trade at around 16x 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.

Autoliv's PEG ratio

Autoliv's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5454. 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 Autoliv's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Autoliv's EBITDA

Autoliv's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.

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

Shorting Autoliv shares

There are currently 941,626 Autoliv shares held short by investors – that's known as Autoliv's "short interest". This figure is 32.1% down from 1.4 million last month.

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

Autoliv's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Autoliv's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Autoliv shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Autoliv shares traded daily (recently around 369265.09803922). Autoliv's SIR currently stands at 2.55. In other words for every 100,000 Autoliv shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2550 shares are currently held short.

However Autoliv's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Autoliv shares, or, against the total number of tradable Autoliv shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Autoliv's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Autoliv shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Autoliv shares, roughly 12 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 Autoliv.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Autoliv is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Autoliv's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.24/100

Autoliv share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.31% of net profits

Recently Autoliv has paid out, on average, around 9.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Autoliv shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Autoliv's case, that would currently equate to about $0.62 per share.

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

Autoliv's most recent dividend payout was on 13 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Autoliv's shares ever split?

Autoliv's shares were split on a 1388:1000 basis on 1 July 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1388 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Autoliv shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 28% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Autoliv shares which in turn could have impacted Autoliv's share price.

Autoliv share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Autoliv's shares have ranged in value from as little as $65.6928 up to $108.76. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ALV.US volatility(beta: 1.81)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 Autoliv's is 1.8058. This would suggest that Autoliv's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
