Is MarketAxess stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing MarketAxess stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MarketAxess's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MarketAxess's P/E ratio
MarketAxess's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, MarketAxess shares trade at around 35x 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.
MarketAxess's PEG ratio
MarketAxess's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2061. 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 MarketAxess's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MarketAxess's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $372.1 million.

Recently MarketAxess has paid out, on average, around 43.26% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value.

In MarketAxess's case, that would currently equate to about $2.72 per share.
While MarketAxess's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that MarketAxess may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
