Is L Brands stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

L Brands's P/E ratio

L Brands's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, L Brands shares trade at around 16x 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.

L Brands's PEG ratio

L Brands's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6078. 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 L Brands's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

L Brands's EBITDA

L Brands's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.2 billion.

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

L Brands's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like L Brands.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

L Brands's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.54

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and L Brands's overall score of 20.54 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 15th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like L Brands is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

L Brands's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.48/100

L Brands's environmental score of 4.48 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that L Brands is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

L Brands's social score

Social score: 13.11/100

L Brands's social score of 13.11 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that L Brands is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

L Brands share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 5.55% of net profits

Recently L Brands has paid out, on average, around 5.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), L Brands shareholders could enjoy a 0.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In L Brands's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

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

L Brands's most recent dividend payout was on 18 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have L Brands's shares ever split?

L Brands's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your L Brands shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for L Brands shares which in turn could have impacted L Brands's share price.

L Brands share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, L Brands's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LB.US volatility(beta: 1.78)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 L Brands's is 1.7758. This would suggest that L Brands's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
