Is Magna International under- or over-valued?
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 23x. In other words, Magna International shares trade at around 23x 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 0.85. 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 $3.5 billion.

Shorting Magna International shares
There are currently 1.8 million Magna International shares held short by investors – that's known as Magna International's "short interest". This figure is 15.1% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Magna International shares can be evaluated.
Magna International's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Magna International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magna International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magna International shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Magna International's SIR currently stands at 1.38. In other words for every 100,000 Magna International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1380 shares are currently held short.
However Magna International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magna International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magna International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magna International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magna International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0059% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magna International shares, roughly 6 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Magna International.

Magna International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 33.67% of net profits
Recently Magna International has paid out, on average, around 33.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.97% 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 1.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magna International's case, that would currently equate to about $1.66 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 3 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2021 (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 $42.3997 up to $104.28. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Magna International's is 1.5654. 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).
