Is Century Communities stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Century Communities stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Century Communities's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Century Communities's P/E ratio
Century Communities's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Century Communities shares trade at around 3x 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.
Century Communities's PEG ratio
Century Communities's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.45. 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 Century Communities's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Century Communities's EBITDA

Century Communities share dividends

Recently Century Communities has paid out, on average, around 4.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Century Communities shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Century Communities's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.
While Century Communities's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Century Communities is investing more in its future growth.
