Is Magna International stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Magna International's P/E ratio

Magna International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Magna International shares trade at around 22x 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.

Magna International's PEG ratio

Magna International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.524. 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 Magna International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Magna International's EBITDA

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

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Magna International 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.).

Magna International's social score

Magna International share dividends

45%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.84% of net profits

Recently Magna International has paid out, on average, around 44.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magna International shareholders could enjoy a 3.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magna International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.78 per share.

While Magna International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Magna International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Magna International's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Magna International's shares ever split?

Magna International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 March 2015. 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 Magna International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Magna International shares which in turn could have impacted Magna International's share price.

Magna International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Magna International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.49 up to $88.2716. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MGA.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 Magna International's is 1.5295. This would suggest that Magna International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
