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.

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 3.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.82% 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 0.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Century Communities's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
While Century Communities's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Century Communities is investing more in its future growth.
Century Communities's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Century Communities's is 1.9534. This would suggest that Century Communities's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
