Is AutoZone stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

AutoZone's P/E ratio

AutoZone's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, AutoZone shares trade at around 19x 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.

AutoZone's PEG ratio

AutoZone's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1894. 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 AutoZone's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

AutoZone's EBITDA

AutoZone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.6 billion.

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

AutoZone share dividends

We're not expecting AutoZone to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have AutoZone's shares ever split?

AutoZone's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 April 1994. 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 AutoZone shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AutoZone shares which in turn could have impacted AutoZone's share price.
