Is Dunkin Brands Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing Dunkin Brands Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dunkin Brands Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Dunkin Brands Group's P/E ratio

Dunkin Brands Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Dunkin Brands Group shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Dunkin Brands Group's PEG ratio

Dunkin Brands Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.2388. 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 Dunkin Brands Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dunkin Brands Group's EBITDA

Dunkin Brands Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $445.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Dunkin Brands Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Dunkin Brands Group shares

There are currently 3.0 million Dunkin Brands Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Dunkin Brands Group's "short interest". This figure is 6.5% up from 2.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dunkin Brands Group shares can be evaluated.

Dunkin Brands Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Dunkin Brands Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dunkin Brands Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dunkin Brands Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.7 million). Dunkin Brands Group's SIR currently stands at 0.8. In other words for every 100,000 Dunkin Brands Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 800 shares are currently held short.

However Dunkin Brands Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dunkin Brands Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dunkin Brands Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dunkin Brands Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dunkin Brands Group shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0406% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dunkin Brands Group shares, roughly 41 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Dunkin Brands Group.

Dunkin Brands Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.55% of net profits

Recently Dunkin Brands Group has paid out, on average, around 28.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dunkin Brands Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dunkin Brands Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.61 per share.

While Dunkin Brands Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Dunkin Brands Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Dunkin Brands Group's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Dunkin Brands Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dunkin Brands Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.6395 up to $106.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DNKN.US volatility(beta: 0.92)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
