Is Choice Hotels International stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Choice Hotels International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 19.74% of net profits
Recently Choice Hotels International has paid out, on average, around 19.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Choice Hotels International shareholders could enjoy a 0.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Choice Hotels International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.925 per share.
While Choice Hotels International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Choice Hotels International is investing more in its future growth.
Choice Hotels International's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Choice Hotels International's shares ever split?
Choice Hotels International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 October 2005. 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 Choice Hotels International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Choice Hotels International shares which in turn could have impacted Choice Hotels International's share price.
Choice Hotels International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Choice Hotels International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $109.09 up to $156.9582. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Choice Hotels International's is 1.3312. This would suggest that Choice Hotels International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
