Is Donegal Group A stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Donegal Group A stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Donegal Group A'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.

Donegal Group A's PEG ratio

Donegal Group A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.06. 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 Donegal Group A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Donegal Group A share dividends

80%

Dividend payout ratio: 79.63% of net profits

Recently Donegal Group A has paid out, on average, around 79.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Donegal Group A shareholders could enjoy a 4.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Donegal Group A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

Donegal Group A's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Donegal Group A's most recent dividend payout was on 15 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Donegal Group A's shares ever split?

Donegal Group A's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 26 April 2006. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Donegal Group A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Donegal Group A shares which in turn could have impacted Donegal Group A's share price.

Donegal Group A share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Donegal Group A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.9345 up to $17.0092. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
