Is Group 1 Automotive stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Group 1 Automotive stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Group 1 Automotive's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Group 1 Automotive's P/E ratio

Group 1 Automotive's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Group 1 Automotive shares trade at around 5x 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.

Group 1 Automotive's PEG ratio

Group 1 Automotive's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4853. 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 Group 1 Automotive's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Group 1 Automotive's EBITDA

Group 1 Automotive's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Group 1 Automotive's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Group 1 Automotive share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 3.53% of net profits

Recently Group 1 Automotive has paid out, on average, around 3.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Group 1 Automotive shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Group 1 Automotive's case, that would currently equate to about $1.05 per share.

While Group 1 Automotive's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Group 1 Automotive is investing more in its future growth.

Group 1 Automotive's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Group 1 Automotive share price volatility

GPI.US volatility(beta: 1.53)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 Group 1 Automotive's is 1.5304. This would suggest that Group 1 Automotive's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
