Is Enact Holdings stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Enact Holdings's P/E ratio

Enact Holdings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Enact Holdings shares trade at around 6x 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.

However, Enact Holdings's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the insurance-specialty industry or those of similar companies.

Enact Holdings share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.1% of net profits

Recently Enact Holdings has paid out, on average, around 49.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enact Holdings shareholders could enjoy a 2.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enact Holdings's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

Enact Holdings's most recent dividend payout was on 25 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Enact Holdings's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
