Is Genuine Parts stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Genuine Parts's P/E ratio

Genuine Parts'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, Genuine Parts 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.

Genuine Parts's PEG ratio

Genuine Parts's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9179. 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 Genuine Parts's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Genuine Parts's EBITDA

Genuine Parts's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Genuine Parts's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Genuine Parts share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 56.92% of net profits

Recently Genuine Parts has paid out, on average, around 56.92% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genuine Parts shareholders could enjoy a 2.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genuine Parts's case, that would currently equate to about $3.5 per share.

Genuine Parts'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.

Genuine Parts's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Genuine Parts's shares ever split?

Genuine Parts's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 April 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Genuine Parts shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genuine Parts shares which in turn could have impacted Genuine Parts's share price.

Genuine Parts share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genuine Parts's shares have ranged in value from as little as $112.8372 up to $187.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GPC.US volatility(beta: 0.98)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 Genuine Parts's is 0.9829. This would suggest that Genuine Parts's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
