Is Gray Television stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Gray Television's P/E ratio

Gray Television's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Gray Television shares trade at around 14x 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.

Gray Television's PEG ratio

Gray Television's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3681. 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 Gray Television's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Gray Television's EBITDA

Gray Television's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $954 million.

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

Gray Television share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 25% of net profits

Recently Gray Television has paid out, on average, around 25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gray Television shareholders could enjoy a 1.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gray Television's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Gray Television's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Gray Television's shares ever split?

Gray Television's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 30 September 1998. 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 Gray Television shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gray Television shares which in turn could have impacted Gray Television's share price.

Gray Television share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gray Television's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.0619 up to $24.839. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GTN.US volatility(beta: 1.66)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 Gray Television's is 1.6592. This would suggest that Gray Television's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
