Valuing ManpowerGroup stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ManpowerGroup's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ManpowerGroup's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 254x. In other words, ManpowerGroup shares trade at around 254x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
ManpowerGroup's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2862. 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 ManpowerGroup's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ManpowerGroup's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$445.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ManpowerGroup's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million ManpowerGroup shares held short by investors – that's known as ManpowerGroup's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ManpowerGroup shares can be evaluated.
ManpowerGroup's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ManpowerGroup shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ManpowerGroup shares traded daily (recently around 451751.83823529). ManpowerGroup's SIR currently stands at 2.72. In other words for every 100,000 ManpowerGroup shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2720 shares are currently held short.
However ManpowerGroup's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ManpowerGroup shares, or, against the total number of tradable ManpowerGroup shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ManpowerGroup's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ManpowerGroup shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ManpowerGroup shares, roughly 23 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 ManpowerGroup.

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 ManpowerGroup.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 16.24
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ManpowerGroup's overall score of 16.24 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like ManpowerGroup 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.).
Environmental score: 1.57/100
ManpowerGroup's environmental score of 1.57 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 10.57/100
ManpowerGroup's social score of 10.57 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 4.59/100
ManpowerGroup's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ManpowerGroup is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ManpowerGroup scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that ManpowerGroup has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||16.24|
|Total ESG percentile||8.96|
|Environmental score percentile||5|
|Social score percentile||5|
|Governance score percentile||5|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 61.41% of net profits
Recently ManpowerGroup has paid out, on average, around 61.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ManpowerGroup shareholders could enjoy a 2.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ManpowerGroup's case, that would currently equate to about $2.26 per share.
ManpowerGroup's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
ManpowerGroup's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, ManpowerGroup's shares have ranged in value from as little as $55.1192 up to $104.81. 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 ManpowerGroup's is 2.0987. This would suggest that ManpowerGroup's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
