Is Group 1 Automotive under- or over-valued?
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 9x. In other words, Group 1 Automotive shares trade at around 9x 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 3.5093. 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

Shorting Group 1 Automotive shares
There are currently 1.8 million Group 1 Automotive shares held short by investors – that's known as Group 1 Automotive's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Group 1 Automotive shares can be evaluated.
Group 1 Automotive's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Group 1 Automotive's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Group 1 Automotive shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Group 1 Automotive shares traded daily (recently around 196510.93247588). Group 1 Automotive's SIR currently stands at 9.33. In other words for every 100,000 Group 1 Automotive shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9330 shares are currently held short.
However Group 1 Automotive's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Group 1 Automotive shares, or, against the total number of tradable Group 1 Automotive shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Group 1 Automotive's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Group 1 Automotive shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1169% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Group 1 Automotive shares, roughly 117 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Group 1 Automotive.

Group 1 Automotive share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 4.28% of net profits
Recently Group 1 Automotive has paid out, on average, around 4.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.78% 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 0.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Group 1 Automotive's case, that would currently equate to about $0.94 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 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
