Is Franchise Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Franchise Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Franchise Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Franchise Group's P/E ratio
Franchise 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 11x. In other words, Franchise Group shares trade at around 11x 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.
Franchise Group's PEG ratio
Franchise Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7037. 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 Franchise 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.
Franchise Group's EBITDA
Franchise Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $301 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Franchise Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Franchise Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 44.79% of net profits
Recently Franchise Group has paid out, on average, around 44.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Franchise Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Franchise Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.
While Franchise Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Franchise Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Franchise Group's most recent dividend payout was on 14 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Franchise Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Franchise Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.0935 up to $54.78. 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 Franchise Group's is 1.7679. This would suggest that Franchise Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
