Is eBay stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing eBay stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of eBay's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
eBay's P/E ratio
eBay's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, eBay shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.
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.
eBay's PEG ratio
eBay's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.221. 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 eBay's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
eBay's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.8 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a eBay's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$9.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||23.48%|
|Gross profit TTM||$7.1 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||7.37%|
|Return on equity TTM||25.54%|
|Market Capitalization||$23.4 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
eBay share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 23.04% of net profits
Recently eBay has paid out, on average, around 23.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), eBay shareholders could enjoy a 2.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In eBay's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.
While eBay's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that eBay is investing more in its future growth.
eBay's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have eBay's shares ever split?
eBay's shares were split on a 2376:1000 basis on 19 July 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2376 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your eBay shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 57.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for eBay shares which in turn could have impacted eBay's share price.
eBay share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, eBay's shares have ranged in value from as little as $35.1365 up to $51.3489. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while eBay's is 1.3489. This would suggest that eBay's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
