Is Maximus stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Maximus's P/E ratio

Maximus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Maximus shares trade at around 16x 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.

Maximus's PEG ratio

Maximus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0716. 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 Maximus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Maximus's EBITDA

Maximus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $484.5 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Maximus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Maximus share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 28.07% of net profits

Recently Maximus has paid out, on average, around 28.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Maximus shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Maximus's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.

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

Maximus's most recent dividend payout was on 30 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Maximus's shares ever split?

Maximus's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 June 2013. 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 Maximus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Maximus shares which in turn could have impacted Maximus's share price.

Maximus share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Maximus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $56.5 up to $88.4614. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MMS.US volatility(beta: 0.71)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 Maximus's is 0.7101. This would suggest that Maximus's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
