Is Loews stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Loews's P/E ratio

Loews's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Loews shares trade at around 15x 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.

Loews's PEG ratio

Loews's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.69. 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 Loews's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Loews's EBITDA

Loews's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

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

Loews share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 7.69% of net profits

Recently Loews has paid out, on average, around 7.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Loews shareholders could enjoy a 0.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Loews's case, that would currently equate to about $0.25 per share.

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

Loews's most recent dividend payout was on 5 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Loews's shares ever split?

Loews's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 8 May 2006. So if you had owned 1 share 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 Loews shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Loews shares which in turn could have impacted Loews's share price.

Loews share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Loews's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.3057 up to $67.9858. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

L.US volatility(beta: 0.83)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 Loews's is 0.8336. This would suggest that Loews's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
