Is Employers stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Employers stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Employers's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Employers's P/E ratio
Employers's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Employers shares trade at around 20x 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.
Employers's PEG ratio
Employers's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.05. 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 Employers's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Employers's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $71.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Employers's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$655.4 million|
|Operating margin TTM||9.9%|
|Gross profit TTM||$151.6 million|
|Return on assets TTM||1.08%|

Employers share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 67.88% of net profits
Recently Employers has paid out, on average, around 67.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Employers shareholders could enjoy a 2.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Employers's case, that would currently equate to about $1.01 per share.
Employers'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.
Employers's most recent dividend payout was on 23 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Employers share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Employers's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.472 up to $42.177. 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 Employers's is 0.0491. This would suggest that Employers's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
