Is Marriott International stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Marriott International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Marriott International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Marriott International's P/E ratio
Marriott 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 27x. In other words, Marriott International shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Marriott International's PEG ratio
Marriott International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6825. 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 Marriott 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.

Marriott International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 21.1% of net profits
Recently Marriott International has paid out, on average, around 21.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Marriott International shareholders could enjoy a 0.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Marriott International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Marriott International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Marriott International is investing more in its future growth.
Marriott International's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Marriott International's shares ever split?
Marriott International's shares were split on a 1061:1000 basis on 21 November 2011. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1061 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Marriott International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Marriott International shares which in turn could have impacted Marriott International's share price.
Marriott International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Marriott International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $130.4477 up to $194.701. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Marriott International's is 1.5609. This would suggest that Marriott 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).
