Is GATX Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing GATX Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GATX Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GATX Corporation's P/E ratio
GATX Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, GATX Corporation shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
GATX Corporation's PEG ratio
GATX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.87. 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 GATX Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
GATX Corporation's EBITDA
GATX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $711.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a GATX Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

GATX Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 35.68% of net profits
Recently GATX Corporation has paid out, on average, around 35.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GATX Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GATX Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.08 per share.
While GATX Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that GATX Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
GATX Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have GATX Corporation's shares ever split?
GATX Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GATX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GATX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted GATX Corporation's share price.
GATX Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, GATX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.5656 up to $125.6298. 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 GATX Corporation's is 1.0558. This would suggest that GATX Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
