Is MGIC Investment stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing MGIC Investment stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MGIC Investment's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MGIC Investment's P/E ratio
MGIC Investment's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, MGIC Investment shares trade at around 5x 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.
MGIC Investment's PEG ratio
MGIC Investment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.54. 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 MGIC Investment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MGIC Investment's EBITDA
MGIC Investment's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a MGIC Investment's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

MGIC Investment share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 12.46% of net profits
Recently MGIC Investment has paid out, on average, around 12.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MGIC Investment shareholders could enjoy a 2.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MGIC Investment's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.
While MGIC Investment's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that MGIC Investment is investing more in its future growth.
MGIC Investment's most recent dividend payout was on 22 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have MGIC Investment's shares ever split?
MGIC Investment's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 June 1997. 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 MGIC Investment shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MGIC Investment shares which in turn could have impacted MGIC Investment's share price.
MGIC Investment share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, MGIC Investment's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.2127 up to $15.993. 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 MGIC Investment's is 1.3596. This would suggest that MGIC Investment's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
