Is General Motors Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

General Motors Company's P/E ratio

General Motors Company'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, General Motors Company 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.

General Motors Company's PEG ratio

General Motors Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0731. 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 General Motors Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

General Motors Company's EBITDA

General Motors Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $18 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a General Motors Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

General Motors Company share dividends

3%

Dividend payout ratio: 2.64% of net profits

Recently General Motors Company has paid out, on average, around 2.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), General Motors Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In General Motors Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.09 per share.

While General Motors Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that General Motors Company is investing more in its future growth.

General Motors Company's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Over the last 12 months, General Motors Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.1938 up to $55.3005. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GM.US volatility(beta: 1.35)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while General Motors Company's is 1.3547. This would suggest that General Motors Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
