Is Choice Hotels International stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Choice Hotels International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Choice Hotels International'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.
Choice Hotels International's PEG ratio
Choice Hotels International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1437. 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 Choice Hotels International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Choice Hotels International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.43% of net profits
Recently Choice Hotels International has paid out, on average, around 16.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.01% 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 1.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Choice Hotels International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.95 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 17 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2023 (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 23 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 $103.705 up to $149.1074. 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 1.2725. 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).
