Is Landstar System stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Landstar System stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Landstar System's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Landstar System's P/E ratio
Landstar System'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, Landstar System 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.
Landstar System's PEG ratio
Landstar System's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4796. 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 Landstar System's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Landstar System's EBITDA
Landstar System's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $502 million.

Landstar System share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.24% of net profits
Recently Landstar System has paid out, on average, around 31.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Landstar System shareholders could enjoy a 0.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Landstar System's case, that would currently equate to about $1.2 per share.
While Landstar System's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Landstar System may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Landstar System's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Landstar System's shares ever split?
Landstar System's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 January 2005. 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 Landstar System shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Landstar System shares which in turn could have impacted Landstar System's share price.
Landstar System share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Landstar System's shares have ranged in value from as little as $136.8553 up to $208.2714. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Landstar System's is 0.9149. This would suggest that Landstar System's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
